01-13-15 Kurt Koontz grew up loving the outdoors in Boise, Idaho. He studied business at University of Puget Sound and became a sales executive at Micron Technology. In his work, he traveled across the U.S. and the world. He retired at age 36 to adventure travel—mostly by bicycle, across Europe, Western U.S., and Canada. In 2012 he began writing about his travel adventures, and that year walked the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, the Spanish pilgrimage route dating from medieval times. On the Camino, he lived moment to moment, walking in faith, never knowing where his next meal or bed for the night were to be found. Walking on the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from pilgrims and began taking a deeper look at his own life/stories. His journal entries and e-mails home, became the foundation for his first book, “A Million Steps” an emotional, spiritual, and personal account of his Camino pilgrimage.
