The Story of a Thru-Hiking Adventure on El Camino de Santiago
by Keith Foskett
If you have read any of Kieth Foskett’s aka “Fozzie” books or seen any of his YouTube videos then you will appreciate his complete honesty. After returning from my solo Camino trip in October 2017 I was keen to relive the experience as soon as I could, and this book certainly gave that to me. I thi
nk I probably warmed to his book as he was a true Englishman. He starts the tale from his childhood days of camping with his parents and the love of the outdoors took off from there. As you get deeper into the book you can appreciate his personality, you feel as if you are really in his head. He talks about the good days, the bad days, the cold days, the wet days and the simply mad days!
Here is the write up from Goodreads
The author walked the Camino to indulge his love for the outdoors and the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other – day after exhilarating day. Along the way he made friends with fellow pilgrims from all over the world, all travelling for their own different reasons.
He was assailed by new experiences and unexpected discoveries – from the pain of blisters and extremes of temperature to encountering kleptomaniacs and fake faith healers and being threatened with arrest in Spain for ‘not sleeping’.
This is the story of one man’s walk, but it speaks to all who see life itself as a journey and are alive to the revelations that an escape to nature can bring. As this book shows, it is rarely the start and the finish that count, but the journey in between.
