When Danielle Aird went in search of stories along the Camino de Santiago, she found a wealth of history not only of the Camino but of a wider Spain, and came across a fascinating, motley collection of characters alive and departed (pilgrims, hosts, volunteers, and other Spaniards). Unexpectedly, along the way, she also revisited her own unconventional past. In The Camino is not just for Walking, while her narrative takes readers by the hand through the small villages and larger cities, they are joined by usually friendly, often inspiring and sometimes eccentric characters spanning a millennium.
An anthology of 101 stories on the Camino de Santiago in the pilgrims’ own words. Filled with compelling and inspiring stories from pilgrims around the world, Who’s on the Camino? is a treasure trove of Camino tales told by the pilgrims themselves. Whether you’ve walked the path or dreamt of doing so, their narratives will captivate your heart. From giggly young French students to artists, musicians, award-winning authors, and even a recipient of the Order of Canada, each pilgrim’s journey is unique and touching.
