A Pilgrim with No Direction : Six Days on the Camino de Santiago
Brian, author of two books on Spanish wine and Spanish culture, returns to recount the humorous adventures of his six-day journey along the Portuguese route of the Camino de Santiago (The St. James' Way pilgrimage) in northern Spain, which he and three Spanish friends set out on during the 2010 Holy Year. It's a delirious mixture of travel, history, facts, anecdotes and plain fun. In addition to the physical and spiritual challenge they encounter on the way, they confronted daily tests of a more mundane nature like trying to leave a country to urinate, outsmarting a puppy, appeasing an angry mother with hungry children, and enduring seismic snoring. In others words, living the Camino of Life itself. After more than twenty years of residing in Spain, Brian possesses a knowledge and insight about this land that few outsiders do, and at the same time still preserves the right touch of foreign innocence. So, take that first step and join the journey. You won't want to look back!
