Walking Baltimore includes Charm City's well-known neighborhoods -- Downtown, the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, and Fells Point. But in the voice of its insider author, the book also covers lesser-known and far-flung corners, revealing what makes Baltimore such a wonderful and fascinating destination and hometown. Full of little-known facts and trivia, this book shows how and why Baltimore was an essential player in the country's early history and continues to be influential today. Here is a city almost unparalleled in American history and it lives up to its modern reputation as a quirky, come-as-you-are and be-what-you'll-be place. The zany Baltimore-based film director John Waters (of Hairspray fame) summed it up best when he said, "It's as if every freak in the South was headed to New York City, ran out of gas in Baltimore, and decided to stay."

The mystery, the adventure and the probable disappearance of St characterize the various elemente of the narration This novel, where the visionary-metaphysical element is skilfully intertwined with the everyday, has as its main theme the disappearance of a protagonist - truth or illusion? - and it emerges, at the limit of the incredible, from an on the road and mental adventure: a journey that Domenico and Gabriella, free and curious spirits, backpackers and a great desire for nature, have made along a trekking route of about 900 Km. Destination: the Way itself and then the Finisterre Ocean, passing through Santiago de Compostela. With the scorching sun, the whipping wind and the heavy rain, the two, who have decided to live their lives to the end without being stopped by anything, advance trampling on grass and stones, arid and muddy terrain, asphalted roads that cross villages and city. They live in the most disparate situations and meet people of all kinds, maturing together, in continuous confrontation, step by step. Visions, fantasies: memories of other lives? PUBLISHER: TEKTIME

The day's leisurely walk to Samos was only 6.6 miles. Despite the sunny weather, puddles created muddy conditions. I made each step slowly and deliberately, observing the countryside carefully, and anticipating extended prayer time that ...

In Grandma's On the Camino, author Mary O'Hara Wyman, a 72 year old grandmother from San Francisco, relates her 2010 adventures walking 500 miles alone as a pilgrim on the Camino Frances. Her journey takes her from St. Jean Pied de Port in France, across the Pyrenees to Spain, then westward to the ancient spiritual destination of Santiago de Compostela. Through back-home reflections based on journal entries and postcards sent to her grand daughter, Mary describes engaging encounters with pilgrims of all ages and motivations, close-range observations of numerous animals on the trails, and the daily tasks of finding food and a bed each evening. Readers will gain keen insight into the physical day to day rigors facing a walking pilgrim, as Mary endured several falls on the trails, a serious foot injury, copious rain, mud and unseasonal cold and hot weather. Grandma's On the Camino will inspire pilgrims and armchair readers of any age with Mary's adventures and coping mechanisms, calmness under pressure, humorous outlook on life and truly spiritual approach to walking the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela. You will walk as a pilgrim with Mary through every word in the book.
