It’s Your Camino: One Couple’s 500 Mile Pilgrimage Across Spain

by Kenneth R. Strange Jr.

Reviewed by Eileen Quinn Knight, Ph.D. Profiles in Catholicism

The author was inspired by the film, “The Way” and tells the story with grace and humor as he and his wife share a common vision and a deep quest for meaning. They begin their pilgrimage that “reveals an abundance of courage and grace” growing from the extraordinary people they encounter along the historic Camino de Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. 

This was a five-hundred-mile, thirty-one day trek from the Pyrenees Mountains in France to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain for all sorts of reasons: religious, spiritual physical, and personal. For the author and his wife walking the Camino is about adventure and a lifelong love of Spain, both of which shine through in It’s Your Camino.  The book is infused with humor, grace, and a reverence for humanity, this is an uplifting tale about overcoming emotional and physical challenges (including the author’s bad knees) in the pursuit of a dream. The Camino, like life, was a personal journey, a journey which was meant to help the traveler reflect upon the other world, breathe in the air, and wait in joyous expectation for what might be around the corner.
