From day one it was everything and more that I thought it would be. The 500 mile walk (less a few recovery days by wheels of all things) across the ‘Camino de Santiago’, was a journey of utter relaxation! Strange but true.
Walking The Camino is a metaphor for life and business.
If you want to hear what it takes to turn a dream into reality this talk is for you.
“Eimear presents with infectious enthusiasm. Very well prepared and delivered” – Ethna Clenaghan
Whether you plan to walk The Camino or have other potentially life-changing dreams, the story of overcoming this amazing 500 mile trek will inspire you.
There were tears and laughter. There was fun and friendship.
It was a journey of high emotion, ups and downs, pain and celebration.
“The REAL experience, rather than just the film” – Aileen Reynolds
“Your presentation was natural, open, interesting, personal and practical” – Micheal and Geraldine Leonard
With the number of people completing the Camino rising annually, this talk will appeal to anyone with an interest in taking on the challenge of the whole walk or parts of it, and those who want to hear how a dream of many years became a reality, and what it took to make it happen.
The Camino had almost died out by the 1980’s from its ancient roots as a traditional pilgrimage, although a small number still participate from that perspective, the Camino offers the modern walker/pilgrim with some serious time out from what has become a rather hectic lifestyle.
Having a daily destination for five weeks, as the only important decision to be made, results in immense relaxation, camaraderie with fellow walkers, and quality rest. It provides time for honest reflection and personal insights.
Re-visit those long Spanish days with me and share my journey of self-discovery.
