Anthony Murphy I’ve been a hiker since the age of 13 when I hiked my first charity hike. Hiking has always brought me a great deal of joy and wherever I lived I’ve always found a trail! I’ve hiked the Appalachian trail and the long trail extensively as well as most of the trails in Vermont! 10 years ago I planned my first hiking trip in Europe – the Camino de Compostela. I decided to continue traveling in Europe and most recently walked the Portuguese coast from Porto to Santiago, 167 miles! I fall in love with the small towns we visited along the way, and meeting the local people who lived there is a cultural immersion. I decided to offer this class to hopefully bring my passion to anyone interested in learning how to experience the joy of traveling by foot! This June, Anthony will be heading to France to walk the GR 22 to Mont Saint Michel with a group of 6! This class will meet inside CVU.
