Woman Walks 500 Miles Along Camino De Santiago for the Second Time

Cheri Powell walked the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. Powell published a second edition of her book, Seven Tips to Make the Most of the Camino de Santiago to help others plan similar treks.

louisville, ky (I-Newswire) December 4, 2013 - - For the second time Cheri Powell walked the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago - "the Way of Saint James" - in northern Spain. Powell has published a second edition of her book, Seven Tips to Make the Most of the Camino de Santiago, containing the most recent information to help others plan similar treks.

Each year, thousands of people from all over the world make modern-day pilgrimages to the famed Camino, traveling along different routes to reach Santiago de Compostela, the tomb of Saint James. In 2010, an estimated 200,000 will attempt the trek.

Powell's book is unlike any other about the Camino. It is not a travelogue or guide, but rather a preparation manual that gives practical advice on the different aspects of undertaking the journey of a lifetime. Guidance is offered on preparing mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually for the trip. The second edition gives up to date information about services available to the modern pilgrim. Photos are included which allow the prospective pilgrim to visualize conditions on the trail.

"You will leave this book at home after reading it," Powell says. "It will probably be dog-eared and have notes written in the margins. That is its intended use … this is your workbook for getting to the Camino."
Her advice is practical, down to earth, and based on experience. The book includes chapters on the Camino's history, what to take and what to leave, setting goals and expectations, tips on finding places to sleep and eat, advice on remaining healthy, Camino etiquette and more. Worksheets are also included to help travelers calculate the cost of the trip.

Powell's book is published by R.C. Linnell Publishing, Louisville, KY, and is available on Amazon worldwide (ISBN 9780984002559).
Powell is available for talks about the Camino de Santiago and will help prospective pilgrims in their preparation. She lives in Louisville, Ky. See www.CheriPowell.com.
