El Camino De Santiago by Simon Green is a diary of his journey across northern Spain. For some people this experience is a religious journey, for others a trip perhaps of general interest. Simon begins on day one, and continues right up to the end, where he and his girlfriend complete the entire route. This was an easy read, and the writing style is relaxed, as if he is sitting across the table from you, giving his advice for the day. He mentions the interesting people he meets, as well as the places and the weather, which keeps it interesting. I appreciated the time he took to include these details. You can even take your Smartphone along on a trip such as this, and sometimes you can get internet in the areas he visited.
Once I began reading, it was hard to put the book down. This practical guide offers sage advice at the end for those who would like to take the same journey he did. But I think it goes beyond this in that, when traveling, the list he provides will likely work for a number of various treks across the world. He was injured by blisters and made a point of warning readers in his writing not to make the same mistake he did. The list of what to take and what not to take is insightful, and makes the planning that much simpler when trying to do it for the first time. I’ve never been to Spain, but after reading this book I’d like to visit some of the places Simon Green took in, and perhaps one day I will even have my own El Camino De Santiago adventure. Recommended.
