International travel journalist Maggie Espinosa will discuss her book about her 800-mile walk to California’s 21 missions at 1 p.m., Saturday, July 8, at the Heritage of the Americas Museum on the campus of Cuyamaca College, 12110 Cuyamaca College Dr. West, El Cajon. Admission is $5 per person.

Espinosa’s 10-month walk from California’s first mission in San Diego to the end of the Mission Trail in Sonoma became a book called “On a Mission, An 800-mile Walk to Discover California’s El Camino Real” (published in 2015). The El Camino Real, or the King’s Road, was the route that originally connected the 21 missions of old Spanish California. The book includes sightseeing and adventure opportunities, as well as the best choices for restaurants, bed and breakfasts and hotels. “I was only the 11th person to complete this sojourn which included several 20-mile days. My book is a compilation of the journal and photos I recorded along the way,” said Espinosa, a San Diego Press Club board member who has authored two books and visited more than 40 countries.

Espinosa, a travel journalist since 2002, has reported on hot spots around the world for ABC, NBC and CW television, along with the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, San Diego Union-Tribune and Huffington Post, plus is a frequent guest on radio shows. She also teaches a writing class at San Diego Writers Ink, hosts guided day tours to fun locales in Southern California and Baja, Mexico, and operates an online store called Global Personal Shopper (www.travelwithmaggie.com).

Heritage of the Americas Museum, a cultural and educational facility featuring historic art, culture and the natural history of the Americas, opened in January 1993. For museum information, visit www.heritageoftheamericasmuseum.com.
