“The beautiful Synchronicity of the day: In the dormitory, I had the pleasant surprise to find a book in English, and only one, put there for the reading, that a pilgrim left: Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist.” — Adventurers

At least two groups of people are now known to have set off on the Quest of the Sword, the real-life adventure devised by Paulo Coelho.

We leave with little savings. And moreover I shall not say to you how much. But quite as in a famous television program, we shall strike at random doors in order to find lodging house at the inhabitants.

We thus are in Saint Jean, where we passed the door of the pilgrims, under a pouring rain. I was happy there, because I began to have enough to nose about maps and books, because contrary to what I thought, the enigmas are not as well simple as they seemed to. And we did not find everything. But it doesn’t much matter: what counts, as many people say: it is the road.

The quest involves solving an enigma, visiting locations on the route and gathering information that you have been there.

Synchronicity: One group of adventurers found a copy of The Alchemist at their first overnight stop!
