      Interesting quick read. The author, Gabriel Schirm, and his wife decide to walk El Camino de Santiago, with a plan to go 490 miles in 30 days. Along the way they have ups and downs, the downs mostly associated with physical injuries, aches, and pains. At one point, Schirm is almost incapacitated due to knee problems and tendinitis in his ankle, so they take a bus and train to their stop two days hence so they can rest and recuperate a bit. Fortunately, he recovers enough to continue walking, and [...]

      "It's about the way, not the destination." This was the theme of the book and one that the author does a great job of illustrating throughout. Sunrises to Santiago is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to travel in hopes of finding adventure while also finding his or herself. You are taken on a journey as the author and his wife go on a 30 day trip across Spain and part of France for the Camino de Santiago.As I read this book, I found my own desire to do the Camino de Santiago increase tenfol [...]

      On this walk Gabriel and his wife Amy Set out on the Camino de Santiago together after having taken a 30 day leave from work. Gabriel who has had many jobs in interesting fields and traveled extensively for one of them is now at a loss and needs to find a new direction and purpose to his life. As in all of the stories I have read of people's pilgrimages, on the Camino De Santiago, I come away with good messages and ideas for myself and I think that is why I like reading them so much. Each journe [...]

      I won this book through first reads. I think that's how that goes.Anyway, I am fairly hesitant when it comes to non-fiction books. Not in the sense that I don't enjoy them but it's the real life factor. It takes something special to write non-fiction and make it interesting. This is book isn't so much interesting as it is inspirational, I read this during school and just the amount of inspiration that was thrown at me while reading it really made me tear up. Crying in college is embarrassing. C [...]

      I really enjoyed this book. I found his search for the purpose in his life, honest and relatable. I liked the fellow pilgrims he encountered along the way and was touched by the respect and compassion he had for the people who had emotional struggles that they were experiencing. It seems like their stories had a profound impact on his struggles as well. I just found his writing style and observations (espeically with the people he met along the way) so fascinating and interesting. He brought me [...]

      As a travel book goes this is one of the better ones I have read. The journey on the Camino De Santiago is one I hope to complete as part of my own journey that I embark on this week where my wife and I hope to circumnavigate the world without flying over a five year period. This book reflected what I had researched about the Camino and I found it built on what I already knew. Overall an enjoyable read.

      I really enjoyed the trek of the pilgrimage of Gabriel in this book. It was very thought provoking from the author's angle and also the friends he met along the way. This book made me feel I was there and making the journey with Gabe and Amy. I was very sorry to see the book end. I will be thinking of the lessons in this book for a long time. As required, I did win this book from .

      I've read a number of Camino books and I thought this was one of the better ones. The author's style of writing and the subject matter he chose to share was interesting. His particular journey was filled with a lot of physical aches and pain but it did not distract me from enjoying his journey. Reading the book was free in the Kindle Lending Library.

    9. Allison on said:

      The author and his wife, both from Denver, walked the Camino at the same time I did. I enjoyed the read and wonder if I ever saw them along the way. The journey on the Camino is truly life changing and this book reflects that.

      One of my favorite personal accounts of the Camino. Allowed me to drift away to my own time on the Camino.

      Really good, a little too much complaining though but still good.
