Q & A with Kevin
WHAT ARE YOUR NEXT STEPS?
In 2020 and 2021 I’m walking England’s ancient Pilgrims’ Way from London to Canterbury. Afterward, I’ll begin the Via Francigena, the historic way in Europe connecting Canterbury to Rome. When I’m not in Europe, I’ll be preparing to walk sections of the California Mission Trail as well as the Florida Trail.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO FOLLOW YOUR JOURNEY?
I really enjoy being connected to pilgrims and followers, especially if you are considering starting your own pilgrimage. Please stay connected with me on Facebook, Instagram, and on the complimentary Book Preview List.
WHEN DO YOU EXPECT SACRED STEPS: A PILGRIMAGE JOURNAL TO BE AVAILABLE?
The book is currently in draft production and editing. There are (literally) miles to go before it is finished but I expect it will be available as a digital book, paperback, and audiobook on Amazon for Easter 2022. In the meantime, please sign up to join the BOOK PREVIEW LIST for updates and previews!
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO IS THINKING ABOUT WALKING A PILGRIMAGE?
I’ve really learned so much from the community of pilgrims and from my own experiences. I began my own backpacking blog (One Step Then Another) several years ago to share those learnings and to connect with fellow pilgrims. I would suggest starting there to understand the many different routes and how to prepare for the journey. My other advice would be to share what my wife told me before I left on the Camino de Santiago: write it down. Journaling during the pilgrimage is really the best way to stay in touch with your thoughts and the entirety of the experience.
