Launch of Haiku Moments on the Camino: France to Finisterre (Oliver Man Publishing).
Haiku Moments on the Camino: France to Finisterre is a traveller’s account of an 800 kilometer walk across northwestern Spain. In the summer of 2010, the author left the French city of St-Jean-Pied-de-Port and, for thirty-nine days, experienced life as a pilgrim. He followed the ancient camino francés to the city of Santiago de Compostela. The author has recorded that journey with haiku, prose and pictures.
