Read an excerpt from first edition of The Camino Ingles
If you have only two weeks, or one week if you live closer to Spain, you can walk the Camino Inglés, get your compostela and hit a number of goals. From preparing for the walk to packing your backpack and hitting the road in Spain, this book is a journey on its own, one that you can read in a couple of hours to make up your mind and do the Camino Inglés.
If you are the kind of person who loves details, at the end of the walk you can get a very fancy certificate in Latin—your own compostela that you can frame and hang on your wall. If you are just after the fun, without the pain of six weeks of walking, this is for you.
If you think you are too old, too unfit, too far away or too busy for the Camino Francés, then this is definitely the Camino for you.
And if you do want to do the Camino Francés one day, this is for you too. You will probably fall in love with Spain and want to come back!
Note: The book is being updated after I walked the route again in April 2019 and found significant changes.
Don’t wait around for the perfect time or for enough time to do a long adventure, when you can read this book now and be off on your own real and doable adventure in a month or less.
Waiting to get healthy, to accumulate enough vacation time, for the kids to grow up, and so on, can be never-ending. Think about all the things you planned to do and never got around to doing—don’t let this be one of them!
Don’t wait to do the Camino. There’s a little one that you can do right now and with this book you can succeed. Don’t wait for spiritual guidance, for a call from above; things happen after you start taking action, so stop waiting and start walking!

What readers say about The Camino Ingles
Practical and Encouraging
This book is a clear and practical guide to an alternative – recommended both for those dreaming of one day seeing this historic, sacred region, and those actually planning to get up and do some walking.”

The Bible to the Camino Ingles
I was expecting another spiritual journey story. Instead this is a clear guidebook to the shorter (144 km) Camino Ingles. This author describes the day to day walking, but the clarity of her information gives me food for thought…maybe??? Then she explains how you can get your stuff from point A to point B without carrying it all.Yay!
Carry this book as your guidebook and you won’t get lost, hungry, or cold. She says to leave your books at home, but I wouldn’t leave this one at home. It’s basically the Bible to the Camino Ingles. You’ll be happy you had this one with you.
