    Hi, my name is Dermot Breen and I walked the Camino del Norte, Camino Muxia and Camino Finisterre (1000km) in 2016 in memory of my wife Jacqui and to raise funds for cancer research. I just wanted to let everyone know that my book 'The Man with the Camino Tattoo' covering my experiences has just been published and is now available to purchase online from Shanway Press or Amazon. It costs £12 and all revenue from sales goes to support a cancer research charity. My book is not a guidebook as such, but for anyone interested in walking the Camino, it does provide a very good insight into all that is involved and what you might expect along the way should you choose to embark on the Camino. You’ll find out about the locals and their customs, the markers and signs to look out for, the weather and the terrain, the types of pilgrims (some serious, some casual), the hostels and albergues (some good some not so good), the gear you need and the stuff you can do without, the sleeping conditions and, of course, the inevitable snoring! Here is an extract from the text on the book’s cover:
    “In 2016, Dermot decided to undertake a gruelling 1,000 kilometre pilgrimage along the challenging Camino del Norte in memory of his wife Jacqui, who had been cruelly taken from him fifteen months earlier by ovarian cancer. As he carries his rucksack and great sense of loss with him along the centuries old route, he dearly hopes to achieve some sort of peace - perhaps even find a place of sanctuary. And as the land he passes through gradually reveals many of its wondrous myths and legends associated with St James, he begins to believe that miraculous events are perhaps not only confined to the past. Through the tremendous camaraderie he experiences on his Camino, and particularly through his encounters with the enigmatic Jane, he gains a much better understanding of himself and his loss, which ultimately results in a surprising and life enhancing revelation. Told with great honesty and passion, this is a story that reaches into the very heart of the reader and demonstrates that, even when life can seem utterly hopeless, the human spirit is a powerful force that can rescue even the most vulnerable of souls.”
