Busking to Santiago

Large Print - 2003
Rate this:
Inspired by the murder of the girl he loved while working for charity in Belize, Ben Nimmo set out to play tribute to her memory and raise money for her memorial fund by walking from Canterbury to Santiago de Compostela in Spain - with a trombone. So began a nine-month, two thousand mile odyssey across Europe. Weighed down by a mammoth rucksack (the Pack From Hell) and his trusty trombone, sleeping in the open, in caves and ruined castles, jamming in smoky French bars and rain-swept Spanish streets, Ben struggled on, supported by old memories, new friends and improbable encounters - and an indomitable sense of humor.
