Blaise sets off to celebrate her 50th birthday to give gratitude for her life — a walk of 50 days for fifty years, following the Way of St James in the north of Spain.
What Blaise learns on the Camino de Santiago is gradual, just like the step-by-step journey of over 800 kilometres by foot. With each passing day, the pilgrimage brings more knowledge and understanding into her heart. Beliefs she’s always carried blossom into truths that remain with her well after she returns home to Australia.
50 Days for Fifty Years is a gorgeous fullcolour memoir that celebrates a journey through life, and the realisations that come with a long, contemplative sabbatical.
This is a perfect guide for anyone thinking about taking their own pilgrimage along this ancient path.
