Camino Talks with Bradley Chermside – Author and Podcast Host

Written by Caitlin

On this episode of our Camino Talks series, we are joined by Camino author and podcast host, Bradley Chermside.

In this interview, we talk about what lead Brad to walk the Camino and how he chose his Camino route. His first Camino, the Camino Frances, he chose because it was the only route he had heard of. Since then he has also done the Camino Portugues and has plans for more Camino routes in the future.

He tells us how he descided to write his book and the process of becoming a successful Camino author. It all started with email updates to his friends and family, and lead to plenty of reading and learning!

We also talked about his podcast and some of his top tips for people planning to walk the Camino de Santiago themselves.

Bradley says there are too many reasons that you should walk the Camino de Santiago – so just book it and do it! It will change your life.
