After retiring early from his job as a successful sales executive for a Fortune 500 technology company, Kurt Koontz volunteered in his community and traveled across Europe and North America. He never considered writing a book until he walked nearly 500 miles across Spain in 2012. Those million steps were so compelling that he returned home and began writing and speaking about his life-changing adventures. He lives and writes on a tree-lined creek in Boise, Idaho.

The Camino is an incredible journey and I would highly recommend that you add this to the top of your bucket list. I am going back to Spain on May 13 for round II.

Life can only be lived and experienced in the moment.

Kurt Koontz, A Million Steps

“I believe the main reason we miss life’s signs is we are not open to seeing them or too busy to notice.”
Kurt Koontz, A Million Steps
