Room N111
Join local author and outdoors and adventure writer and cultural anthropologist Beebe Bahrami as she talks about how to prepare for both shorter and longer distance hikes and treks. Included will be practical advice for training, packing, planning, and heading out while also enriching the discussion with personal tales, trials and triumphs, from her own long distance treks on several trails of the Camino de Santiago, Way of Saint James, across Portugal, France and Spain, and shorter treks across eastern Germany, southern England, across Cornwall, in the Colorado Rockies, and right here in our own backyard of Southern New Jersey. 
 
Local writer, anthropologist, and Colorado native Beebe Bahrami has been trekking since childhood, enchanted by the power of a simple walk to connect oneself more intimately to the earth and to oneself. As a young adult she discovered the magical trails of Europe and has been journeying on foot across France, Portugal, Spain, and the UK since 1986, while continuing to explore the beauty of North America as well. She is the author of several travel books, from guides to memoirs, including the just released guidebook from Moon/Avalon Travel, Camino de Santiago, two travel memoirs set in southwestern France, Café Oc and Café Neandertal, and two travel guides to Spain, The Spiritual Traveler Spain and Historic Walking Guides: Madrid. Beebe’s travel, food and wine, outdoors and adventure, spiritual, archaeological, and cross-cultural writing also appears in numerous magazines and websites, including BBC Travel, Wine Enthusiast, Archaeology, The Bark, Bon Vivant, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Fodors.com, Michelin Green Guides, National Geographic books, and Perceptive Travel, among others.
