We had the pleasure of walking with Patricia Schultz, author of the phenomenally successful travel book 1000 Places to See Before You Die on the León to Santiago de Compostela leg of the Camino. Here, Patricia shares her thoughts on her experience with us.
For prospective pilgrims who are Catholic, 2021 is a very special year in the life of the Camino, in that it is a Holy Year, also known as the ‘Jacobeo' or ‘Xacobeo’.
We caught up with Patricia Schultz, author of the phenomenally successful travel book ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die.’ Patricia is joining us at Duperier’s Authentic Journeys to host the Camino walking tour on the León to Santiago de Compostela leg of the St James Way from September 2 to 12.
We would like to introduce you to the smiling faces that make up Duperier's Authentic Journeys. As most of you know, we are a small company privately owned by Juan Carlos and Laurie Duperier. We have walked the Camino for about 25 years, but started our tour company to bring others along with us on our journeys in 2013.
Writers, poets and philosophers have all pondered this question over time, and their answers often echo in one way or another the words of St. Augustine: “Solvitur ambulando.” (“It is solved by walking.”)
