500 Miles to myself: A pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago; (Way Of St. James)

How one adventure can change a life!After burnout and caught in the pressure of the working world, the author looked for a break and decided to take the Way of St. James to Santiago de Compostela. This pilgrimage path radiated a fascination that he could not quite explain to himself. Why does the Way of St. James attract hundreds of thousands of pilgrims every year, and why should you walk 500 miles on foot through Spain? What did he hope to gain from it in the first place? In this travel diary, the author shares his experiences, insights, and personal stories, which, on the one hand, invite us to dream and, on the other hand, inspire us to reflect. Among other things, he found out why one is simply happier with little possessions and how good it is in every respect to throw off ballast. He also learned how strangers can become friends and that every ending is always the beginning of something new. The book contains a packing list If you are looking for a packing list for the Camino de Santiago besides the story, you will find a detailed overview of this book with useful hints regarding the equipment. You will be amazed at how little you actually need. To walk the Way of St. James is not a question of budget.Information about the hostels along the wayOne of the most frequently asked questions to the author was: "Did you find a place to sleep every day?" Our need for security is very pronounced, and with about 400 pilgrims who set off every day, the question is not entirely unjustified. To shed some light on this issue and prevent possible doubts, you will find a separate section on this topic.There are many stories about the Way of St. James, and yet each one of them is unique, just like the person who tells them. If you are interested in why this way fascinates so many and why it is so unique, I hope you enjoy reading. I would be delighted if this book inspires some of you to go on this journey as well.
