    "We don’t always make our best decisions when we are panicked. I was desperate, and as I couldn’t answer the question for myself about what I wanted to do, I hoped someone else would answer it for me. The thing was that I didn’t want anyone else to tell me what I was good at ; I wanted to know what my heart wanted to do. What could I do that would bring me alive every day, using my gifts and abilities to make a real difference in the world ?"Unhappy in her job and uncertain of her purpose, Australian woman Kym Wilson makes an unexpected decision to leave behind her life in Melbourne and walk the Via Francigena, the ancient pilgrim route that leads from Canterbury in England to St Peter’s Square in Rome. Over the 2000-kilometre journey, Kym confronts difficult terrain, exhaustion and pain, fierce weather, snarling dogs, and mud that clumps and clings to her boots. Despite these challenges, she remains true to her quest to understand what her heart truly desires. Kym’s story reminds us that the paths we take may lead us to places we never imagined and that the answers we seek are deep within us, if only we can learn how to find them.
