Paulo Coelho - The Alchemist and The Pilgrimage

Any traveler looking for more than just a geographically descriptive book should give a try to the book "Alchemist" by the great Brazilian writer Paul Coelho. The story of the journey of the shepherd Santiago, to whom ordinary life turns into an extraordinary experience, is not easy to describe. He has inspired many of us to look at the world a little differently.

The author's first book, The Pilgrimage, inspired my mother to walk 300 km to Santiago de Compostela. I was lucky enough she dared to take me along for this unusual adventure. I wish everyone could experience the unique atmosphere of a pilgrimage through northern Spain, to Santiago de Compostela.
