PictureAuthor & Pilgrim Brandon Wilson

Episode 10 makes me think of that well-worn Chinese proverb - The journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step.

Pilgrim's Tale features a recent conversation with author, travel writer, and pilgrim of great renown, Brandon Wilson.

I first met Brandon through his wife, Cheryl - we shared an office during a stint as producers at Paradise Television on Maui. Occasionally during water cooler conversations, Cheryl would share short stories about some of her travels. But I was never able to get the complete picture.

Fast forward several years and Brandon is now the award-winning author of four fantastic books chronicling their journeys as peaceful pilgrims across Tibet, The Alps, from Europe to Jerusalem and across the African continent.

A champion of deliberative travel, Brandon shares the benefit and joy of slowing the pace by escaping the "cacoon" of a British tour bus and taking a long and winding walk across Africa. We also learn the highs and lows as well as a few tips on what it's like to walk for hundreds and even thousands of miles along well-worn pilgrimage trails such as the famous Camino de Santiago across northern Spain.

The books are excellent and with Episode 10 we get an insightful look at one pilgrim's perspective on things.

Brandon Wilson tells of how his father filled him with a sense of wanderlust during a six-week-long road trip from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles along Route 66 during the early 1960s. As a six-year-old boy stopping off at historical and wacky roadside attractions while staying in classic Americana motels, Brandon was bitten by the travel bug.

College was at UNC in Chapel Hill, followed by a year in NYC and then Seattle before he and Cheryl bought around the world plane tickets to begin checking places off their bucket lists.

Enjoy as Brandon and I discuss their adventures ranging from the euphoria of chiseling away at the fall of the Berlin Wall to their Pilgrimage as the first Western couple to cross Tibet.

It's an amazing account of an inspiring life adventure.

Brandon's Books: Yak Butter Blues, Over the Top & Back Again: Hiking X the Alps, Along the Templar Trail: Seven Million Steps for Peace, Dead Men Don’t Leave Tips: Adventures X Africa
