Sometimes you have to change everything before you can change yourself…

There have been three constants in Peter's life.
The desire to travel the world, to love deeply, and the inescapable impulse to write about the first two.

900km to walk. A cycle of generational addiction to break. Embark on this inspirational journey of healing on the Camino De Santiago. From hedonistic festivals, psyche readings, spirit guides, and awakenings, to the rugged beauty and medieval streets of Northern Spain, homelessness becomes a pilgrimage, and an adventure in Spain unfolds. Sometimes you have to change everything to change yourself.
We meet Peter standing on the edge of a cliff contemplating the question, ‘How far would you fall before changing your mind?’
Adrift in Spain, having left everything he owns and knows, he faces the hard truth – life catches up to you no matter how far you run.
Three months before, whilst sitting in a former police cell and handling Christmas delivery requests, he receives a phone call from a stranger who asks him to write her suicide note.
So begins a series of synchronicities that lead him to hike the Camino De Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage route through France and Spain.
As he walks, his father’s story unfolds beside his own, chronicling the addiction that runs through his paternal line and which led to his father’s premature death the year before.
Peter is haunted by what seems like an inevitable path laid before him. Homeless and without money, he must let go of control, place his trust in the kindness of strangers, and embrace the mysteries of the Camino.
Before he can finish his pilgrimage and reach the ocean, a reckoning awaits him in the desert. If he can face his family’s past, he may yet walk into a new world.
Inspired by true events, this story is about grief and healing and how we can send the love back.
“What an incredible read, literally couldn’t put it down. This book takes you on a journey through the spanish hills following the road of the pilgrim. Through Peter’s journey you meet yourself and experience the full spectrum of what it means to feel like a human. Highly recommend this one!”
“A truly inspiring book, thought provoking, sad, joyous and just about every emotion inbetween. The story grabbed me and didn’t let go, it really is that good. Read it, you won’t be disappointed.”
“You have woven so much richness into that tapestry of your journey, the people you met, the places you stayed, the food you ate, the sky, the earth, the atmosphere, the unspoken whispers, the air you breathed, the unheard prayers. I loved it.”
”What an incredible read! This book takes you on an epic journey of great emotion, profound spiritual highs & core transformational change. I was left with a deep desire to walk the Camino. Truly inspirational”
