Not the Perfect Pilgrim …..

Antonio and I, this year, again travelled the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain.

He walked every step with his backpack – just like a perfect pilgrim. I am not the perfect pilgrim but thoroughly enjoyed my holiday, having my pack carried each day, walking reasonable daily distances and occasionally taking advantage of trains, buses, taxis and even bicycles.

“Not the Perfect Pilgrim” is a day to day photographic account of my holiday and includes a packing list and key notes of advice. It is the Perfect gift for someone contemplating the Camino, or for someone who has returned and wishes to continue to indulge in the beauty and adventure of the Camino trail.

It is also NOW available at AMAZON.COM !!!! Just search for Denise Mazzon or “Not the Perfect Pilgrim.”

The challenge below is to publish just 10 photos from the journey.

There are over 90 pages of photos in the book!!!!   Enjoy & Buon Camino

    Great reading news from you again, Denise!
    We’ll certainly check out the book you’ve indicated.
    We have experienced your admirable and empathic blogs, so becoming a “travel agent” is a logical step.
    Please say hello to this tough boy who walked all the way – admirable as well !

    All the best, Art & Birgit

      Thanks guys. Nice to hear from you two. How about La Villa? We will be there Jan 10-24, 2015.
      Btw the book is a collection of photographs of a day to day account of the walk.
      Take care D&A

    I think too many get hung up on having to follow what is expected. I walked the Camino Frances twice carrying all my gear. When I walked the Le Puy route I used a bag service – I enjoyed the walking much more…
