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
