Foreword
Trish Clark

After leav­ing my pre­vi­ous career in the Australian travel industry to research and write, I suc­cess­fully pub­lished two sold-out volumes of Good Night and God Bless: A Guide to Convent and Monastery Accommodation in Europe.

 

Another adven­ture beckoned. Walking the entire length of the Camino de Santiago took me six weeks and two sep­ar­ate attempts. Writing the guide­book took more than a year—but it was time well spent, reliv­ing such a mem­or­able, moment­ous jour­ney.  

Even when I am work­ing on other pro­jects, I think about the Camino every day. Following all those yel­low arrows across Spain for weeks on end taught me much about life, about myself, about free­dom, about per­sever­ance, about trust­ing God and about the abund­ant joys of liv­ing a simple life.
