John Seegers is passionate about writing, storytelling, and photography. After retiring from over 35 years in the hotel business in group sales and catering, John decided to walk around his neighborhood to lose weight and stay healthy. This eventually leads to his interest in the 500-mile walk along the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain. A journey to be portrayed in his book, Walk Your Own Camino, a combination memoir, self-help, and historical account of the Camino de Santiago.


Expected Release: January 2023

The walk, delayed due to the covid-19 pandemic, finally happened in September-October 2021. With my Camino de Santiago completed, I am currently writing my manuscript about the experiences, lessons learned, fellow pilgrims encountered, the food, and the medieval history of the Camino de Santiago. I hope to complete my story by the end of 2022. It was an amazing adventure and 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.
