After hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2012 I watched the film The Way and became enamored with the Camino de Santiago. In 2018 I flew to Germany for work and after the trade show I bought a backpack from Decathlon, booked a flight to Paris, a train to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, and set out on my own Camino pilgrimage. I covered 537 miles (865 km) in 18 days along The French Way to Santiago and along the Finisterre Camino to the Atlantic Ocean. This hike was less social than my experience on the AT but the solitude of walking 50km a day gave me exactly what I was needing from my pilgrimage.

¡Buen Camino!
