Years ago an overachieving and harried young mother accidentally flushed her gold watch down the toilet. Time passed, but the image of the lost watch continued to haunt her, a symbol of an overcommitted life. Two decades later, propelled by a series of curious coincidences, she leaves behind her busy professional life, her cell phone, and her family to escape the tyranny of time and walk five hundred miles across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. Steps Out of Time brings the mysterious and wonderful world of the Camino to life with its tales of serendipitous encounters, new friends made (and one tragically lost), stunning natural beauty, and unforgettable food. By the end of her journey, an exhausted and exhilarated Katharine Soper is keenly aware that she has completed much more than a month-long walk.

Discover the magic and metaphor of Camino! Leaving a highly-visible job took some courage, but Tracy Pawelski knew it was time. As she looked out on her horizon, her next step crystallized. She would join her 21-year-old daughter on a once-in-a-lifetime walk across Spain called El Camino de Santiago.

Camino has a way of teasing out life's most meaningful lessons.

I'm Off Then has sold more than three million copies in Germany and has been translated into eleven languages. The number of pilgrims along the Camino has increased by 20 percent since the book was published. Hape Kerkeling's spiritual journey has struck a chord. Overweight, overworked, and disenchanted, Kerkeling was an unlikely candidate to make the arduous pilgrimage across the Pyrenees to the Spanish shrine of St. James, a 1,200-year-old journey undertaken by nearly 100,000 people every year. But he decided to get off the couch and do it anyway. Lonely and searching for meaning along the way, he began the journal that turned into this utterly frank, engaging book. Filled with unforgettable characters, historic landscapes, and Kerkeling's self-deprecating humor, I'm Off Then is an inspiring travelogue, a publishing phenomenon, and a spiritual journey unlike any other.

Theresa did not consider herself an adventurer before her trip; yet somehow this smaller-than-average but larger-than-life woman, at the age of 34, found herself in the middle of rural Spain, having the adventure of a lifetime. Sunrise in Spain shares Theresa's epistolary account of the most exciting moments of her journey across the 500-mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, over the Pyrenees Mountains, and across Spain to the famous cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Entering the trail with a practical perspective of her hiking journey, Theresa was skeptical of the transformative nature of the pilgrimage, which is often described in three phases: the breakdown and rebuilding of the pilgrim's body, mind, and soul, in that order. To her surprise, each phase had a significant impact. She immersed herself in the intangible and overwhelming gifts of the Camino, persevering through the numerous physical and mental challenges she encountered. And ultimately, what Theresa found on the Camino was nothing less than a miracle. The genuine kindness and generosity among strangers, lifelong friendships held together by powerful bonds, self-discovery, and countless inspirational moments fulfilled her heart and soul in a way she'd never imagined. Completing the Camino de Santiago was the thrill of Theresa's lifetime, and awakened in her a thirst for continued exploration, adventure, and discovery. She offers Sunrise in Spain as an inspiration to others to open their eyes to the world around them, take notice of the people they interact with each day, push their limits to discover their true capabilities, and undertake something amazing for themselves.

After spending his 20s traveling the world and hopping from job to job, Gabriel Schirm was lost. At 32 years old, he desperately needed to find direction and meaningful purpose in his life. With no physical training, he decided his answers were waiting for him somewhere along the historic 490-mile pilgrimage route called the Camino de Santiago in Spain. From the physical high of crossing the Pyrenees Mountains to the mind numbing rhythm of walking through the endless wheat fields of the Meseta, the route was filled with many challenges. Accompanied by his "guru" wife Amy, Schirm faces setbacks like bed bugs and tendinitis, all in the pursuit of elusive answers. The lessons came from the serendipitous experiences and conversations with fellow pilgrims from all over the world. Sunrises to Santiago chronicles a wondrous journey of personal growth, physical pain, and outdoor adventure while teaching us all to enjoy life's incredible journey.

" Start writing. Don't ask what or why...just start" My sister Jeannie, deceased 7 years earlier, wrapped her angel arms around me that September day on the Camino Santiago de Compostela and guided me to my purpose. What is it that magically draws us to step outside our normal realm of existence? That unexplainable energy that sings a calling to our soul? A knowing which came in the late summer of 2011, my pilgrimage was the culmination of several years in which I began learning to listen to the energies of the Universe. Listen to the knowledge my soul cradles deep within. Listen to the love and guidance of my guardian angels. Believe that all I need to know, all I need to understand, is available to me if I simply remain open to the forces of the Universe ...and listen. In September 2014 I followed my soul knowledge and embarked on the Camino Santiago de Compostela, an ancient pilgrimage path some 500 miles crossing the French Pyrenees and west across the north of Spain. A Camino of the Soul - Learning to Listen When the Universe Whispers shares my Camino story and, more importantly, a lesson of growth and transformation.

A memoir of fifty days on the Camino de Santiago and the aftermath in the life of the author. This is not a travelogue. Rather, it is a memoir of thoughts, feelings, and experiences while making a spiritual pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. The author walked from Montserrat, near Barcelona, to Finisterre, experiencing solitude for the first part of the walk along the Catalan route of the Camino, then in the company of fellow pilgrims after joining the more familiar French route. This is a story of walking, experiencing, feeling, being. Along the way the author rambles on about beer, Debussy, Prozac, economics, and other sundry topics that tend to waft through the brain while walking 850 miles across Northern Spain.
