The Camino de Santiago is a hike of 500 miles through France and Spain that began historically as a religious pilgrimage. The journey can be compared to walking the Appalachian Trail or Pacific Crest Trail. The most popular reason for walking the Camino is people looking for a new challenge. Walkers wanting to test themselves physically and mentally along the way. The start of The Camino Frances goes over the Pyrenees, so if you’re looking for a challenge this is for you. Karin Kiser has walked the Camino de Santiago three times, served as a volunteer at a pilgrim hostel in Spain and led cleanup efforts along the Camino Frances. She is a member of the American Pilgrims on the Camino and author of 10 books, including Your Inner Camino and After the Camino. In this program, Kiser answers questions to "all things Camino" and more. She'll show you what gear she used, which resources to consider and how to make the most of the Camino experience. Even if you don't have plans to walk the Camino you'll enjoy Karin's stories and hearing of her adventures along the way . . . you may even want to implement some of her tips and tricks into your own local hike or walk. Don't miss this free event and rare opportunity to meet and talk with someone who's walked "The Walk!" Register now to reserve your spot, space is limited.
