The Camino Diaries by Cilla Cole
Experience the landscapes, cuisines and eccentric personalities of the Camino de Santiago, not to mention the tears and tantrums, through this compilation of the candid journals kept by Cilla, her father-in-law Terry and friend Tom when walking the ancient pilgrim trail across France and Spain together in 1995.
Much like the medieval pilgrims who walked the same path 800 years before them, as adversities start to take their toll and divergent motivations clash, this unlikely group fin
‘We were an odd group made up of three generations, all with different budgets, loyalties, fitness levels and, above all, motivations… I was the only female in a group made up of my new husband, his dogmatic father and a man I had met only twice and knew little about. What could possibly go wrong?’
Is it madness or naivety when a young woman thinks walking the ancient Camino de Santiago pilgrimage path with her husband, her father-in-law, and his architect, would be a fun way to spend her honeymoon? But it doesn’t take Cilla long to realise that walking 1500 kms across France and Spain with a single-minded judge and an ex- Army commando and avid bushwalker will be no sightseeing holiday.
Much like the medieval pilgrims who walked the same path 800 years before them, as adversities start to take their toll and small irritations build into volcano-sized grievances, this unlikely group find themselves inside a walking pressure cooker.
Experience the landscapes, cuisines and eccentric personalities of the Camino of 1995, not to mention the tears and tantrums, through the candid journals of three very different pilgrims. Placed alongside each-other, these diaries make for an intriguing and often hilarious read illustrating just how differently three individuals can experience the same adventure.
