It’s over. A lifetime of work, even if it’s work you love, takes its toll.

Bidding farewell to your working life can be tough, many of us reach retirement with no real plans, and no idea how we’ll maintain our sense of purpose. Some time to think might be just what the therapist ordered. The Camino de Santiago, known in English as St James’s Way, is not just for the faithful. It’s a long walk (it’ll take you around 30 days) through the pastures, villages and historically important towns of northwest Spain. These days the majority of walkers are there for sport or leisure and many even cycle—but whatever you’re motivation, you’ll have plenty of time to think, and to be inspired.
