Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Reasons People Do the Camino

Spiritual reasons. They like hiking. To discover things inside themselves. Midlife crisis. To pray for a sick friend. Cultural reasons. To test themselves. Personal drug rehab. A promise to their father. To travel in a non-touristy way. They´re going through a divorce. To have their sins forgiven. To discover their life path. For a friend who died. To decide on a career change. To start a new life. They just knew they had to do it.
