    Author and Adventurer Kurt Koontz about his book A Million Steps

    in Self Help

    VividLife Radio's Kristen White speaks with author and adventurer Kurt Koontz about his recent book, A Million Steps. In A Million Steps, Kurt shares his month-long adventure walking from village to village in Spain along a route that pilgrims have followed since medieval times. Kurt also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery, and love. Kurt Koontz grew up with a lot of the outdoors in Boise, Idaho. He studied business at the University of Puget Sound, then returned to his hometown to rise through the ranks as a sales executive for Micron Technology. While working, he traveled on business across the U.S. and the world. When he retired at age 36, he took to adventure travel—mostly by bicycle across Europe and in the Western U.S. and Canada. It wasn't until 2012 that he began writing about his adventures. That year, he walked the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, the Spanish pilgrimage route dating from medieval times. This journey, he says, was a very different kind of travel. On the Camino, he lived moment to moment, not knowing where he would find the next meal or sleep the next night. As he walked the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his own life stories. Recorded in his journal and e-mails home, they became the foundation for his first book, A Million Steps, due out late this year. He now lives and writes near family and friends, on a tree-lined creek in Boise. http://kurtkoontz.com/about-kurt/

    A Million Steps with Guest Kurt Koontz:The Jenn Royster Show

    in Travel

    Dr. Jenn welcomes guest Kurt Koontz, author of the book, A Million Steps. The title for this book is a rough estimate of the number of steps he took while walking the Camino de Santiago. Over the course of a kilometer, he counted 1,153 steps. Kurt did the math and discovered that he would take a total of 909,717 steps on the trail between St. Jean Pied-de-Port, where it began, and Santiago de Compostela, where it ended. Kurt added in another 3,000 or so steps per day to cover the walks to dinner and short hikes for sightseeing. Kurt will be sharing his insights on self discovery, lessons learned and the inspirations gained on a solo pilgrimage journey.


    About Kurt Koontz: After retiring early from his job as a successful sales executive for a Fortune 500 technology company, Kurt Koontz volunteered in his community and traveled across Europe and North America. He never considered writing a book until he walked nearly 500 miles across Spain in 2012. Those million steps were so compelling that he returned home and began writing and speaking about his life-changing adventures. He lives and writes on a tree-lined creek in Boise, Idaho.

    in Spirituality

    Experience a transformative journey of nearly 500 miles on the historic Camino de Santiago with retired Fortune 500 executive Kurt Koontz.  Kurt's recently released book A Million Steps climbs over the high meadows of the Pyrenees, quests through the unceasing wind of the Meseta, and dances in the rains of Galicia.  The grandeur of Kurt's adventure is revealed not only on the trail but in the heart, as he navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery and love, all the while embracing the beauty of the countryside and joyful connections to other pilgrims from around the world.


    Kurt retired at the age of 36.  For the past decade, his travels have taken him to all corners of the world, requiring both physical and mental endurance.
