One of these discusses the importance of having a clear vision in life, where he name checks El Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James, a historic trail located in Spain that’s been traveled by people since medieval times.
El Camino de Santiago is mentioned on the first chapter of Schwarzenegger’s book. In it, he recommends going on walks, which can help you think and reflect, resulting in some of your best ideas and solutions for your problems.
