When Trish Clark was 21 she entered the convent — but it was not by choice! She was in Rome, backpacking on a budget and desperately needed a room for the night.
Years later this search for an affordable bed led to the publication of Good Night and God Bless: A Guide to Convent and Monastery Accommodation in Europe, a series of compact and practical travel guidebooks crammed with information of interest to tourists and mainstream travellers, history buffs and adventure seekers looking for cheap, clean, safe and well-located accommodation in the convents and monasteries of Europe.
These user-friendly travel guides include reviews, directions and contact details of convents and monasteries which welcome men, women and families as overnight guests, local tourist information, things to do and see, places to eat (and drink), colour photos and amusing anecdotes. The Good Night and God Bless series will appeal to budget travellers and modern pilgrims and to those of all faiths and none who seek a unique experience in the convents and monasteries of Europe.

Trish Clark’s latest publication, Guide to the Camino – St-Jean to Santiago is a step-by-step guide to the Camino Frances from St-Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
