However, SOME Cakino Maclaine’s travels are always “out of this world” and interesting to me, and this book was no exception. They were swarming all over me. And by the end, when she writes about running almost 9 miles after trekking 15 to outwit the papparazzi, I had my doubts.

Want to Read saving…. I am not totally unafraid. I’ve heard of the name but wouldn’t know her if I fell over her.

As I maclzine studied philosophy and have an interest in people’s ideas of how the world was possibly created I finished this book, but I can imagine many people who would pick up this book not finishing it.

I can only imagine that my own shhirley journey through time was not yet ready to hear the things that Shirley Maclaine wrote about. Even though I am aware of the premise that comments on any given topic usually say more about the commentator than the topic addressed, do allow me a li’l ‘rant’ here please: Balancing and negotiating the revelations inspired by the mysterious energy of the Camino, she endured her exhausting journey to Compostela until it gradually gave way to a far more universal voyage: This is the story of a journey.

That she embarked on this walk in her 60s really impressed me. The begging for food and not supposed to make friends bit shirlsy on the Camino. I think we are going to deal more and more on a realistic basis about sightings of our space brothers and sisters. Like people gawking xhirley the freeway at accidents and so forth. All I can say is that one must consider that she is an actress.

I’ve never read her books, but her talent, along with her brother’s Warren Beatty has enriched my theatre experience for years and I do feel a bit sad that “pilgrims” would tear her up so and show no respect for her as a person.


Those who believe in what she had written and said would probably not walk. I first read The Camino: At times, her dreams were so lucid she considered them visions, and they were all about her past lives.

My first caminos, 15 years ago, were due to her book and sharing her experience. They are not there. I think we will go into medicine that has more of an energy, electromagnetic frequency base, and not biological and chemical as in drugs.

Little could’ve prepared me for the depth of spirituality of this book. Feb 07, Penelope Douglas added it. Thank you for today’s out loud laugh.

So some people are still excited by the lower things although many are not. Throughout history, countless illustrious pilgrims from all over Europe have taken up the trail. She tells a story that is an engaging travelogue highlighted with spiritual connotations that inspire and enlarge the recounting of her physical traveling.
