MEET OUR GUEST:  Claude Tranchant

Following a painful divorce, Claude Tranchant set out from Australia at age 64 to begin a 100-day solo pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. Along the way, she overcame loss, found empowerment, and discovered bliss. Her best-selling book, Boots to Bliss, recalls the story from Vezelay, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain and beyond. In her new book, Boots to Freedom, Claude finds her inner happiness and emotional freedom through walks across Australia, Nepal, and once more on the Camino de Santiago in her early 70s.
