146. Hiking the GR5 Through Europe with Kathy Elkind

Ready for a grand adventure? Tune in to learn all about how one couple hiked across several countries in Europe over the course of a few months.

Our guest is Kathy Elkind, author of the new book To Walk It Is To See It. In her late fifties, Kathy and her husband took what they call an “adult gap year” and hiked 1,400 miles across Europe’s GR5.

Kathy shares how they prepared for this adventure and what the journey looked like. In our conversation, we discuss the power of self-compassion, how to navigate this type of trip as a couple, advice for those new to hiking, what to pack for a long-distance trek and much more.
