For those of you who have followed me and my blog for a little while know that throughout the past year I’ve been working on creating a book. Today I’m incredibly excited, absolutely over the moon! to share with you that it’s done and ready to be shared with the world!
The book is about my journey on the Camino de Santiago, on which I embarked three years ago. The walk, which covered 800 kilometres from St. Jean Pied-de-Port, in Southern France, to Santiago de Compostela, in North-Western Spain. The journey, the people I met, and the way it has influenced my life since has impacted me tremendously since the Camino, and now I get to share this amazing experience, this wonderful journey, with you and the world!
For any- and everyone who reads this, I want to invite you to my book launch party that will be happening online (via Zoom) on May 16th, at 02:30 PM EST. (Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/74299145746 or the meeting ID: 742 9914 5746)
On My Way:
800 Kilometres to Destination Self.
At my event we’ll enjoy a little “welcome”, an interview with me! the author! (How cool I am an author!!!), I’ll share some Camino snapshots and there’ll be time for questions from the audience. At the very end of my event I’ll even give away one free book! Anyone who attends the Zoom can win!
I hope to see you there! My book will soon be available on Amazon, both in Print and for Kindle! To buy the book you can do so as of the 16th!
Back-cover book blurb:
“Meeting yourself anew can be daunting, but doing so while hiking 800 kilometres across Northern Spain can be life-changing. Aged 19, Leona grabbed her backpack and headed to St. Jean Pied-de-Port, in southern France, and commenced her 35-day trek. The road filled itself with beautiful nature and small towns, blisters and bruises, meaningful conversations with travellers from all over the world, and the endless opportunity of meeting oneself over and over again. Each moment of laughter, joy, doubt, frustration and perseverance leading not just to the grand arrival in Santiago de Compostela, but also to the revelation that you are the creator of your own life.
Dive in and experience the Camino through the eyes of Leona. From making the decision to travel, to spending nights in rooms with strangers, to returning to life’s daily rhythm. The Camino is not just about enjoying a fantastic travel experience, but about discovering your own path in life.”
