Publisher's Summary

A man at a crossroads. A thousand-mile hike. A life forever changed.

Keith Foskett was the definition of restless. Drifting aimlessly, he knew a piece was missing from his life. But when a stranger in a Greek bar tells him about a world-famous pilgrim’s trail, the chance encounter sets Foskett’s life in a new 1,000-mile direction.

On El Camino de Santiago, the wanderer copes with extreme temperatures, fake faith healers, and insatiable kleptomaniacs. Threatened with arrest for "not sleeping" and suffering with excruciating blisters, Foskett pushes himself to new limits. Can he find what he’s looking for and make it to the other side?

Keith Foskett’s travelogues have been short-listed for Outdoor Book of the Year multiple times by The Great Outdoors magazine. Awash with vivid descriptions and a cast of engaging real-life characters, the author delivers a humorous and mesmerizing tale of adventure and metamorphosis. 

The Journey in Between is a daring travel memoir. If you like indulging your inner adventurer, taking the less popular fork in the road, and visiting foreign locations, then you’ll love Keith Foskett’s transformative tale.

Pick up The Journey in Between to take your first step today.

This book will make you mad

If you have ever walked the Camino or are trying to plan a trip to walk the Camino, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK, especially as a guide to how you should behave. So much wonton disregard for Camino history and tradition. you sir are a thru hiker and that's fine but don't go on Camino and COMPLAIN the whole way about how its not made for hikers or it should change for you. Disgusted by your attitude!

This guy is a dramatic whiner

Don’t waste your time if you’re looking for an inspiring Camino pilgrimage. He whines and complains much of the way and makes it very well known that God is not a part of his life. I feel sad for him.

I can’t think of one situation or location that stood out to me during the entire book. It was not engaging.

Pass on it.

Great read!

I so enjoyed this walk on the Camino with fozzy. listened to it on trips back and forth to care for my aging parents. it passed the miles and the time with ease and left me feeling lifted, though I didn't walk the Camino myself. it's clean, it's fun, it's upbeat; you feel the pain and the joys that he experiences. It makes me want to walk the Camino as well. Bice job Fozzy! Thanks for sharing your adventure, the relationships you found, and, I enjoyed hearing about what came after as that is always part of the Walk. Glad to hear you're going to write another book about one of my own dreams, the PCT. Love the reader as wel,l he was great at differentiating the characters and keeping the pace of the Walk.

Not for Grownups

I have a difficult time relating to adult males who still live with their mommies. They tend to come from a deeply different perspective than most other functioning adults do. I wish I would have known that upfront; and I would have passed.

Loved from start to finish

This book captivated me and was one of those rare books that I didn’t want to end. Fossey made it feel like I was there with him. The narrator could not have been better.

Another goodie!

I read his book about his PCT hike. This one was just as entertaining and vivid with characters. Moved very quickly. Lot’s of laugh out loud moments as I listened on Audible. Have recommended to all of my hiking friends. .

Inspiring and freeing

I think all of us have a certain amount of wanderlust running through our veins, that being said not all can drop what we're doing and fulfill that. I love these kind of books as I can walk along the trail with Mr. Foskett and in so doing live a little of my dreams to partake in these kind of adventures

I quite enjoyed the story and its overall pace. my only gripe was the narrator's over pronounced french/Spanish words(it grated a little)

Totally the wrong person to read this book!

Such a great story but totally ruined by having the wrong style of narrator - it’s like having a public school boy practice his diction. I had to check it was actually a person and not a computer-generated voice - such a shame, it’s putting me off finishing it

An open and honest time on el camino

I enjoyed this book, the narration was fairly good, I always prefer the author to narrate but sure. Could have had some pictures thrown in and more details on the camino but overall, not the worst book ever.

it's easy to get lost in the journey with Keith

Keith offers a fascinating retelling of his adventures and those he met on the way. Friends made, experiences had, places found on the way all compounded into deep remembrances, not of the distance walked but the journey between the steps.
