Ready to rove? In Turning 50 on El Camino de Santiago, Janine Harrison fosters wanderlust in armchair travelers and prepares trekkers about to tackle the French Way from St.-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, over the Pyrenees, into Spain. Through personal narrative and "Travel Tidbits" sections, she acclimates readers to the journey, both to preparation and the trail's starting leg. Prior to setting out on this adventure, Janine had never completed more than a day hike. But she was turning 50, damn it, and wanted to enter the "second half" of her life with a BANG, not a whimper! Although her initial imaginings were not what transpired, she gained unexpected gifts from the quest. This tale, both heartwarming and practical, is an excellent read for anyone interested in vicarious travel or planning their El Camino sojourn. And, those who have already hiked one or more sections will undoubtedly nod and laugh in all the right places.
