Arrived in Santiago late yesterday. Cried a lot, laughed a lot and generally felt a great deal of pride.
I am staying on in Santiago for a week as I need time to recharge my batteries.I will send updates throughout the week.
Lastly at this time I want to say again, thank you all for checking in with me during this amazing adventure. No one travels alone, family and friends are there to provide emotional support and you have all done that for me, thank you.
Well I am sticking to the slowing down plan. It is pretty cool to sit outside a typical Spanish bar to listen to the locals and watch the pilgrims walk on by.
The photo was taken at the 100km to Santiago marker. This sign is a hint for me to slow down and absorb the final stage of what the Camino has to offer. Yesterday I walk 34km with ease. Body, mind and spirit are in unison with each other. What a super feeling!
Today I am walking with Hilary and Katrina from Idaho. We last saw each other in Pamplona having ice cream together in the Plaza Mayor so our reunion last night was filled with many funny stories of “Camino-Life”.
I expect to be I. Santiago by Monday afternoon. Thank you all so much for your continued support and encouraging words.
Walking with Claudia today from O’Cebreiro. Don’t know where I am stopping today. This is a great adventure.
Having lunch with 6 Spaniards and 1 Italian. They are so warm and inviting. Special moment for me on the Camino.
And now another few pics….
Sorry you haven’t heard from me for a couple days, WiFi has been non-existent. I am in Ponferrada today. Today Elisa and Darius and I are sharing a hotel room; our little piece of heaven. Additionally we actually went out for dinner and enjoyed Chinese food. Elisa is from Padova, Italy and Darius is from Tel Aviv, Israel. Truly this is a United Nations trip.
