Marcus Ryan - Eat, Pray, Walk

What makes a person walk across an entire country? Religious pilgrimage? Fitness?

To find themselves? Or couldn't afford the bus ticket?!

'From the creator of the award-shortlisted hit of 2017 '¿Hablas Inglés?'and Edinburgh fringe favourite 'Love Me Tinder', comes a bold new show from award-winning vagabond storyteller, Marcus Ryan, as he takes us on another epic adventure in'Eat, Pray, Walk’ the true story of his gruelling 40 day walk across Europe, the Camino de Santiago.

"When I was a kid, I hated to walk. I'd cry at the suggestion of it. Dad loved it and would make me walk everywhere. I never understood it. In September 2017 - of my own free will - I chose to walk over 1,000kms across France & Spain. NOW I know why he loved it so much. That is the journey." - Marcus Ryan

Join one of Australia's most well-travelled comedians and former Edinburgh locals on a poetic journey of great proportions - and great portions of bread - as he tackles his most emotionally and physically exhausting adventure yet, walking the pilgrims route, Camino de Santiago. For forty days on blistered feet and a diet of pastry, tapas, wine & sangria, encountering interesting and often not so interesting characters from all walks of life, in search of answers, but mostly in search of a hot shower, a bottom bunk and Wi-Fi. Faced with injuries, getting lost, scorching temperatures in barren deserts, angry dogs, elderly French snorers, bed bugs, borrowed shoes, stolen sticks and a broken backpack, not to mention getting caught up in a political revolution, this is a tale you'll want to hear, but glad you didn't live!'
