In this book, the author describes her experiences, impressions and feelings during an 800-kilometer walk to Santiago de Compostela. The fantastic adventure of the author awakened irrepressible desire for more awareness and growth. She wants to let go of what was holding her from doing so. It is not only a story of pain and suffering, but also of euphoric sharing and finding personal insights and a greater spiritual awareness. Open is a record of special encounters and experiences. It is a story that will make the reader smile often, and inevitably be open to consideration. Bo Scheeringa (Bedum, 1961) is also working as a photographer. One of her ambitions is to combine photography with her writing.
