Travelogue of a Foot Soldier

by Agastya Kapoor

Between 2014-2017, I did a series of no-money walking pilgrimages through the villages of India. This book is an account of one such pilgrimage. It was an experiment for inner transformation and to check the existence GUEST IS GOD attitude in India; in the modern times. I walked for 20 days with two friends. I witnessed the best and worst of human behavior; in me and others.

Croatia: Beneath the Surface (Travels with Tania Book 2)

by Tania Romanov

Could the tide have turned? It was the spring of 2014. My brother Sasha and I were spending a month roaming around the beautiful peninsula of Istria, in Croatia, where our mother was born.
Friends at home in San Francisco raved about Croatia as a tourist destination. For me, Croatia was the place of disasters that started long before I was born, swept me and my family up, and caused our expulsion–which had continued until just a few years earlier. Could the tide have turned? I wanted to know. I wanted to go beneath the surface to learn what was happening in the countries of the former Yugoslavia, with which my family had such deep roots.
This is the story of our time in Croatia, of conversations with and unique insights gained from interactions with the locals.
Not everything, we learned, was quite as it seemed.

This is the travel essay to have traveled in China, Inner Mongolia, near North Korea (Baekdu Mountain, Tumen River), Tibet. (China: Beijing, Changchun, Shenyang, Yanji, Lhasa, Himalayas, Shangelila, Lijiang, Dali, Kunming, Xian). Additionally, because the original motive to go out of Korea was to study foreign languages, I will also share some info in detail how I could learn foreign languages relatively quicker than the other people.
I like to be called “Korean Gypsy”, traveling like a nomad, singing and dancing with the free soul. I carry a portable speaker time to time to sing with friends in open areas such as a park or mountains. Whenever there is a party, my friends don’t forget inviting me because they remember me as a Korean boy singing with a shouting voice and with bad vibration even in a sober state. I just like singing with friends although I know I am not good at singing.
Now, here in Europe, I am looking at the world covered with white snow. And meanwhile, I am editing this essay. It already has been 6 years and a half since I moved to Europe. Wow, time flies. And this essay was written exactly ten years ago. Ten years ago, I wrote this essay on Christmas Eve in Toronto, Canada. I am so lucky to have lived in Asia, America, and Europe. Where’s next?”

Let’s walk through Camino de Santiago in Spain (1/2)

by Collin Choi

Travel essay and the list of albergue (pilgrim hostel)

***The Camino de Santiago (Latin: Peregrinatio Compostellana, “Pilgrimage of Compostela”; Galician: O Camiño de Santiago), known in English as the Way of Saint James among other names, is a network of pilgrims’ ways or pilgrimages leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups.

The French Way (Camino Francés) and the Routes of Northern Spain are the courses listed in the World Heritage List by UNESCO.

*From prologue

Exactly ten years ago, on summer days, I was walking in the Tibetan Himalayas. I walked with a very painful headache in altitude sickness, and I walked on the muddy trails chitchatting with my Chinese friends in the mountain rain. I remember that one day I ran out of a car and ran away without any direction surprised by the unforgettable scenery of a lake and mountains reflected by the sunset glow. It’s ten years ago that I was moved to tears by the impression of Dalai Buddhists who walked hundreds to thousands of kilometers from the door of their house to the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. And ten years later this summer, I was walking to Santiago de Compostela on two clay feet for over 30 days.

It’s from Martin Sheen’s movie, “The way” that I first heard about “Camino de Santiago” or “Santiago Pilgrimage” (also known as “Camino”). The movie was based on the story on the pilgrimage route that he walked in grief on behalf of his son who passed away during the Camino trip. I stopped watching it in the middle of the movie because I was so sad in some scenes. I kept it in my mind to go there someday and Camino had been asleep in the corner of my memory for long. When I talk to people about Camino, they say they want to walk this route at least once in their life. Christian believers think it’ll be a lifelong wish and non-Christian people will want it to experience that journey as a way of learning or a way to enlightenment. A lot of people want to walk, but actual statistics say that only about 200,000 people a year realize their dream. The ratio is increasing in recent years.
