SUNRISE IN SPAIN
Finding The Good Life Hiking the Camino de Santiago
Hello Friends and welcome! In 2015, I had the adventure of a lifetime hiking the Camino de Santiago. The entire experience has since morphed into so much more than what I could have expected. I wrote a book about my time on the Camino Frances, I give speaking engagements about the trip, there is a video here of all my pictures, and I have since hiked additional long-distance trails including a section of the John Muir Trail (JMT) in 2016 and the Portuguese Camino in 2019. You can also see my blog for those hikes here too. I'd love to hear from you so if you have any question, please contact me! Buen Camino!
Since Theresa first hiked the Camino de Santiago in 2015, she frequently speaks publicly about her Camino journey and the life lessons she brought home with her. View this video to experience the presentation for yourself (link goes to a Google Drive file) - or check out her Upcoming Appearances to see her in person.
Theresa did not consider herself an adventurer before her trip; yet somehow this smaller-than-average but larger-than-life woman, at the age of 34, found herself in the middle of rural Spain, having the adventure of a lifetime. Sunrise in Spain shares Theresa’s epistolary account of the most exciting moments of her journey across the 500-mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, over the Pyrenees Mountains, and across Spain to the famous cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Entering the trail with a practical perspective of her hiking journey, Theresa was skeptical of the transformative nature of the pilgrimage, which is often described in three phases: the breakdown and rebuilding of the pilgrim's body, mind, and soul, in that order.
