Interview with Brazilian Journalist Andrea Prestes

It was a twist of fate that I met Andrea Prestes, the author of the book, Caminho de Santiago – Uma Viagem Fotográfica (A Photographic Journey on the Camino de Santiago.)  She was so inspired after walking the Camino Francés a few years ago that she made a book of her journey.  She was in the process of writing a book about the Camino Portugués when I met her at an albergue in Rubiaes. When she showed me her beautiful book, I was so intrigued how that came about, and asked if I could interview her about it. We shot this video in the backyard of the albergue in Rubiaes.  (video 1:51 mins)


Andrea told me she used a Camino courier service to carry her big bag so that she can take lots of photos for her next book about the Caminho Portugués. I cannot wait to order a copy, especially after meeting Andrea! Below are some photos of her first book, which I just ordered from

Andrea and I have stayed in touch via WhatsApp and Facebook. I hope our paths cross again!  Check for details about her new book, to be released soon.
