One 500-mile trek is not enough

Kentucky woman to tackle Camino de Santiago again. She will evaluate differences from 2005.

 
PRLog - Jul. 5, 2012 - LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 5, 2012) – Few Americans ever attempt a 500-mile trek, much less tackle such a hike twice. In 2005, Cheri Powell, a resident of Louisville, Ky., walked the 500-mile Camino de Santiago—“the Way of Saint James”—in northern Spain, with her husband. Now Powell is planning a return trip to the Camino in August.
Powell will make her second trek without her spouse, but she will not be alone. Each year, thousands of people from all over the world make modern-day pilgrimages to the famed Camino, walking different routes to reach the tomb of Saint James. The recent film The Way, which stars Martin Sheen, inspired many people to take on the challenge of the Camino.
“It was time,” Powell said. “There’s a real spiritual yearning to return. I’ll be keeping a journal and observing the differences from 2005 to 2012—in the Camino and in me.”
Powell’s first trip inspired three books: Seven Tips to Make the Most of the Camino de Santiago, and two books of days, Flowers of the Camino and Pathways of the Camino. Never one to veer from adventure, Powell has traveled to 19 countries and lived in five different countries, including Africa during a two-year stint with the Peace Corps.
Powell will be training in Louisville for the trek over the next several weeks, carrying a backpack with a sign reading “Camino de Santiago.” She would like to raise awareness of the Camino and the value of modern-day pilgrimages. Journalists are encouraged to contact Powell to learn more about her story, the Camino de Santiago, or her books.
