Author, Photographer, Walker

John Seegers, enthusiastic about writing and photography since childhood, will combine the two in his new memoir, Another Camino Story: Learning to walk my own Camino through life on 500 miles to Santiago de Compostela. John walked the Camino Santiago in September/October 2021 and hopes to release his book about this wonderful experience in late 2022. Read on for John's bio. Join John Seegers' blog to keep up with his thoughts on training, walking, and the Camino de Santiago.


Another Camino Story

Expected Release: December 2022

The walk was delayed for over a year due to the covid-19 pandemic. When European borders opened in June 2021 for United States residents, planning for the trip continued. The Walk finally happened in September-October 2021. When I returned home in late October, I began writing my Camino de Santiago story about the experiences, lessons learned, fellow pilgrims encountered, the food, and the medieval history of the Camino de Santiago., The manuscript is going through final editing and I plan to have it published by December 2022. It was an amazing adventure and I hope that many will have an opportunity to share in my journey through the written word.

Until then, visit John's blog for thoughts about the Camino, about walking, and to keep up with his plans.
