“Finding Your Rhythm on the Camino de Santiago” virtually puts the reader on the road with Kristin. The story is not only rich in its descriptions of the experience but also explores the question of what might motivate one to take on the popular pilgrimage. The story goes beyond mere place to plumb the depths of what makes walking the Camino a transformative experience.

Kristin’s background includes a 30-year career in publishing. After she left that career, she and her husband set out on a journey to see the world. Walking Spain’s Camino de Santiago was one of their many adventures. Their website, www.TravelPast50.com, tells the stories of their travels. In addition to writing for her travel blog, Kristin is a freelance writer and a regular contributor to radio and podcasts.

Kristin’s award includes a $500 cash prize, an award certificate, and promotion via IFWTWA news, social media and website.

Please join us in congratulating Kristin on this achievement.
