No Dark Nights of the Soul here!

60 and Solo on The Camino de Santiago de Compostela by Kay Smith is a novelty among the Camino memoirs I have read thus far: a peregrina with no personal insights or problems to grapple with on The Way. Neither the surrounds, the walking, the people, lingering thoughts of her life, nor her health have, as per her writing, a major emotional nor psychological effect. I have read several ebooks and blogs from non-religious seniors and all were vastly more interesting

Good primer

I enjoyed this little book. In my opinion it is written in that Helen Reddy "I am woman" undertone. Being a guy that doesn't do much for me. However as someone researching for my own trek on the Camino, this book . Actually serves as an excellent primer.

IPod this book because she walked the Camino on the exact days that I am walking. I reading her book I learned but the weather might be like what I needed to pack and what I can expect to see in the spring . I also enjoyed reading about all the kind people that she met and how she looked at the path . I really enjoyed reading this book. I suggest getting out a guide book as you read her book. Great story!

Interesting. Not as full of stories as other Camino books. Definitely just blogs she kept. Wish she had added insights now that she has been away from the Camino. Would have liked to see blogs as base and her expanding on them for a book.
