If you have ever looked for a guide book about the Camino de Santiago and its many routes you will undoubtedly have heard of the Camino author, John Brierley. He is the author of a collection of maps and guides to the Camino de Santiago. His guide books about the Camino are some of the most comprehensive and interesting Camino books available. We interviewed John about his journey from being a charter surveyor through to being an author and respected Camino expert.
