Publisher's Summary

After spending his 20s traveling the world and hopping from job to job, Gabriel Schirm was lost. At 32 years old, he desperately needed to find direction and meaningful purpose in his life. With no physical training, he decided his answers were waiting for him somewhere along the historic 490-mile pilgrimage route called the Camino de Santiago in Spain.
From the physical high of crossing the Pyrenees Mountains to the mind numbing rhythm of walking through the endless wheat fields of the Meseta, the route was filled with many challenges. Accompanied by his "guru" wife, Amy, Schirm faces setbacks like bed bugs and tendinitis, all in the pursuit of elusive answers. The lessons came from the serendipitous experiences and conversations with fellow pilgrims from all over the world. Sunrises to Santiago chronicles a wondrous journey of personal growth, physical pain, and outdoor adventure while teaching us all to enjoy life's incredible journey.

Whiny and self-absorbed

I really struggled to finish this book. I don't think it was very well written, the only fully developed character was the author / narrator (even his wife who he walked with the WHOLE way functioned only add a plot device to spew inspirational sayings at opportune times) and he seemed so whiny and self-absorbed that I never empathized with him. It seemed like he was constantly trying to be profound, and that really got in the way of telling an honest narrative about the author's experience on the Camino. Reading a memoir is choosing to spend a significant amount of intimate time with the author -- seeing the world through their eyes, and hearing their thoughts. It helps if you like the author. In this instance I did not.

Enjoyable listen

This was my first audio book, which I "read" on my way to work in my last weeks there before going to walk the Camino. It was a enjoyable read, I appreciated the lessons and warnings. One little twinge of annoyance - don't try to do accents!! Aside from that, a good read. Thanks, and well done on finishing the Camino!

I really enjoyed this.

I have been interested in the Camino for some time, though have yet to walk it. The story told both the good and the bad of the trail, and didn't seem to sugarcoat anything. Very good perigrino :-)
