a site to celebrate long walks, outdoor adventures, and especially the Camino de Santiago
created by writer and unlikely pilgrim Beth Jusino
“Beth’s story is a testament to the beautiful things that can happen when you stop saying, ‘I could never do that.’ And it’s a powerful reminder that disentangling ourselves from our responsibilities and compulsions can help us grow and thrive.”

The blog is a collection of stories and lessons from more than 100 days spent on the Chemin du Puy (from Le Puy to St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France), the Camino Frances, and the Camino del Norte, as well as FAQs, lists, links to Camino news from around the world, quotes to inspire your journey, and recommended resources. There’s a lot here, so use the drop-down menu under “Blog” in the header to find what you’re looking for.

“For armchair travelers who’ve wondered if they too can tackle an epic outdoor adventure, writer Beth Jusino shows us that anything is possible. ”
