David Landis is an experienced outdoor adventure specialist whose hiking repertoire includes trails as varied as Everest Base Camp and other trails in the Himalayas, Camino de Santiago in Spain, the Saint Paul Trail in Turkey, the Inca Trail in Peru, Torres del Paine in Patagonia and the Israel Trail. In 2004, he embarked on a round-the-world trip that took him to over 40 countries on four continents. He has also led a group of young adults on a bicycle trip across the continental USA. When he is not traveling or bicycling, he works with web development and communications projects. David cofounded the Jesus trail in 2007 along with his Israeli friend and business partner, Maoz Inon.
David and Anna have been working together with the Jesus trail since 2007. Their research for the book involved hiking thousands of kilometers in the Galilee, visiting countless historical and religious sites, holing up in libraries surrounded by a fort of research materials and walking the 800-km length of the Camino Frances in Spain in order to learn more about pilgrimage. They were married in May 2010 and continue to work with the Jesus trail and other pilgrimage trails in the region.
