Books on the Camino

Just finished reading the book by Eyln Aviva, "Following the Milky Way: A Pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago".

An unique account from a woman who walked the camino way back in 1982 when it was nearly abandoned. The camino wasn't at all easy back then. Although Eyln has done some segments of the camino by using other transport (taxi) due to the lack of facilities in those areas, it is nevertheless a mean feat back in the eighties.

My latest purchase at Borders Book Store in Perth Australia, Tim Moore's "Spanish Steps: Travel with my Donkey". I probably could find this book at Borders in Singapore, but I just realized that the last time I took the trouble to drive to Borders here was like 2 years ago. Funny how sometimes we end up buying things far away that we can get locally.

This is a humorous account of an Englishman's journey to Santiago with a donkey.
