    1. diary of the 500 mile walk to Compostella in Spain. Priest Dave decided to walk it in celebration of his 10th anniversary of being a Catholic priest. lots of good inside I of, like how the pilgrims wash their clothes, the importance of sox, conversations and scenery along the way. Great descriptions of everything: the auberges (pilgrim hostels), the 26lb backpack, the walking stick, the chapels along the way, the people, the food. Each chapter concludes with a short implication, kind of a lesson [...]

    2. This grace-filled tale of a modern pilgrim gave me quite a bit to ponder. Scary prayers, excess baggage, simple joys, faith journeys, community, valuing other's journey--not comparing or racing to get ahead, thankfulness, personal call to service, and the grace to say yes. As someone who is not usually moved by spiritual literature, I found this book particularly striking.

    5. This book makes me want to walk the Camino! After reading Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods," I've given up on the Appalachian Trail, but the Camino seems doable, other than the meager breakfasts and abundance of dinner wine. Giving a month of my life to put aside the daily distractions to think about God, Jesus, and my 'spiritual life' seems like the least I could do. What an opportunity to walk toward my sins and fears rather than trying to walk away from them.Father Dave's presentation was e [...]

    6. The Camino is the historic trail across northern Spain that pilgrims have used for centuries to make a trip to the burial place of Saint James. Dave Pivonka, an American Franciscan priest, decided to make the hike as a way to thank God for the 10th anniversary of his ordination.The author experienced many insights and humorous incidents along the way, which he shares with readers in a breezy, easy-to-read style. The Camino, like life generally, has its ups and downs and plenty of interesting peo [...]

    7. I felt very guilty letting this little book sit unfinished for several months. It was a Lenten project, and I failed at that, only about half way through the 135 pages. So three days ago I decided to complete my Lenten hike, and last night arrived (via the author, Father Dave Pivonka) at the tomb of Saint James the Apostle in Santiago. In thirty-one days, Father Dave and his fellow priest, Father Joe, had walked over five hundred miles -or 1,024,853 steps, according to their pedometer. They were [...]

    8. This book was entertaining and had some good spiritual insight. The author, a priest, tells the story of his walk across Spain on the ancient pilgrimage route - the Camino de Santiago. He tells stories from his experience and uses them to teach spiritual lessons. I had a few favorite quotes from the book:"Each day we get up in the morning and chose to love better than we did the previous day. This is growth in the spiritual life." (p. 51)and"The goal of every Christian ought to be to love more p [...]

    9. This book was a Christmas gift from my mother given to me a few months after I completed the Camino. Father Dave writes about so many of the same emotions that I experienced and simple truths that were revealed to me, those that I have not been able to fully articulate about my own Camino hike. I know I will revisit this book again and again for further reflection on the most beautiful journey of my life.

    10. Father Dave hikes the Camino Real in observance of his 10 year anniversary as a priest. Along the way he learns many small lessons about himself, his faith, and his relationship with God. A nice lesson for all of us about paying attention to the small things as pointers to the larger things we should notice.
