Walking can be both a physical and a mental undertaking – a time for gathering thoughts and centering ourselves. For Catharina van Bohemen, her 1998 Camino de Santiago journey, so beautifully depicted in the Ockham NZ Book Awards longlisted 'Towards Compostela: Walking the Camino de Santiago', is a pilgrimage away from a crisis in her marriage towards a greater understanding of self and family; for actor and writer Michelle Langstone, in her moving essay collection 'Times Like These', walking the slopes of Maungawhau is a salve as she bids her father goodbye and strives to conceive. They speak with Carole Beu about journeys taken and wisdom gained. AUCKLAND WRITERS FESTIVAL WAITUHI O TĀMAKI 2021
