This week we have a special treat for our podcast audience. We spoke to Katharina Husemann and Giana Eckhart who conducted a recent study on deceleration on the Camino. The Camino de Santiago journey is undertaken by thousands of pilgrims every year, who have different reasons for walking or cycling the trail.
Giana and Katharina’s studies conclude that most pilgrims experience a phenomenon known as deceleration during their trip. Time seems to pass at a slower pace and pilgrims are freed from the clutches of modern technology and the frantic pace of normal life. Listen to these two academics from The Royal Holloway University of London discuss their findings and hear all about their own personal experience on the ancient trail.
