Publisher's Summary

Published in 2020, this is one of the most intimate, touching, and humorous travelogues you'll ever listen to.

Of the many Camino books out there, Lost on the Way: A Journal from the Camino de Santiago is, perhaps, the only one that is like an autobiographical travel memoir, a Spain travel guide for hiking in Spain, and a Camino de Santiago guidebook for the Camino del Norte, Camino Frances, and the Camino Primitivo.

When Blake Farha was unexpectedly laid off, he knew the time had finally come to walk the Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage stretching all the way across Spain. Armed with a cheap notebook, a ballpoint pen, and the ugliest pair of shoes he’d ever owned, he set out to fulfill a dream and to get a grip on the demons that have plagued him his entire life.

In this uncensored travel journal, Blake chronicles his 600-mile sojourn on foot through the Spanish countryside and invites listeners deep into the inner workings of his heart and mind.

Day by day, mile after mile, the Camino, the pilgrims he meets, and the time for reflection bestow upon him countless insights on depression, anxiety, self-worth, and finding peace.

Vulnerable and humorous, evocative and earnest, his journal is a window into a lost soul on a journey to self-discovery; a portrait of gorgeous landscapes, human connections, and those questions which don’t seem to have any answers.

Like the thousands of tiny yellow arrows that mark the way to Santiago, these heartfelt entries remind us that hope often hides in unexpected places and stand as a testament to all who listen to them that there’s nothing wrong with getting lost on the way.

Whether you're interested in the Camino de Santiago, traveling in Spain, or walking almost 600 miles in the shoes of a lost soul looking for answers, scroll up and purchase this powerful tale of introspection and wanderlust to join Blake in getting lost on the way!

The Camino part is great.

I enjoyed the Camino del Norte and Primitivo part of the book, the rest however is far too much blah blah and I, I, I, and me, me , me. Save that for your psychiatrist, not go on and on about it in a book. Next time don't do a journal, just enjoy the Camino.

A wonderful story of the Camino snd about life

As I intend to walk the Camino I came across this book and decided to purchase it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - Blake allowed us to come into his life and journey with all its ups and downs. It shows what you can do by stepping outside your comfort zone, how you have to give a bit of yourself to others and what you will receive in return. It tells of his mental health issues and gives you a good insight into his struggles.
It also describes the Camino, the people you meet, the journey and hardships.

A good story to listen to
