Hi, folks! I'm Matthew Anderson, the new Director of Camino NS! I'm an avid long-distance walker of trails near and far. I also teach, write, and podcast about pilgrimage. I'm especially interested in doing pilgrimage locally, wherever we find ourselves, just as Rob Fennell did when he first envisioned the Camino Nova Scotia, and Nicole Uzans continued to do in recent years. I'm excited to join the team, and very pleased to report that walks for the fall are already being announced.
To know more about me, check out my blog here, and my pilgrimage podcast here! Here's a pic of me with my wife Sara Parks walking the Whithorn Way in Scotland, a wonderful Gaelic-themed trail (and a location from which many of Nova Scotia's Gaels arrived to join Mi'kmaq and Acadian communities in the province). Talk soon, pilgrims! ~Matthew
