Camino Talks with John Brierley – The Camino and Corona

Written by Caitlin

Best selling guidebook author, John Brierley, discusses how the Camino teaches us lessons and values that can help us during Covid-19 and the lock-down. Listen to his insights on self-discovery, self-resilience and the power of the Camino de Santiago.

John Brierley started his Camino journey in 1989 when he gave up his day job to travel. He has walked the famous pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela many times and has plenty of interesting stories to tell. John’s books focus on the Camino Frances, the Camino Portugues, the Camino Ingles, and the Camino Finisterre.

The topics they cover in this chat include –

  • The Corona Virus and the Camino
  • The power of bringing the Camino home
  • What makes the Camino special
  • John Brierley’s life-changing moment
  • Being flexible on the Camino
  • If you want to help hospitaleros
