The End of Our Camino Journey

We started planning our Camino journey about a year ago. While I had no set expectations, I did have hopes that it would be memorable and magical. While every day was memorable not every day was magical. Some days were just a long, hot walk with a tired aching body. The saying goes that the Camino will bring you what you need. I believe that statement is true. The long walking days brought new friendships, new experiences and lots of time for contemplation and meditation. Robert and I took our Camino at a slow pace, believing the journey was more important than the destination. I am honestly glad we took the time to walk slow, rest and savor the moments on the trail. Life is meant to be lived, not chased! If you ever choose to engage in a walk such as the Camino, I urge you to take time to stop, observe, smile and engage, your Camino will continue even after you return home. Enjoy your journey!

Here are some final pictures of our journey. (not in any kind of order)

 

Buen Camino,

Day 5 – Caldas de Reis

We are still plodding along. The walk is tough, the fellow pilgrims are interesting, and the scenery beautiful.

I missed posting one day because we were exhausted.

Here are photos from the past 2 days in no particular order.

Grain storage from farming days.

Most dogs bark like crazy when we walk by. This cutie wanted a hug.

Shells and memorials.

Drinking from a roadside fountain.

Proud of this boy for walking even though he feels awful.  

 

 

 

 

 

Day 4 – Redondela

Yesterday was such a long, hot slog we questioned ourselves as to why we started on this journey. Today was so much better. We did have a long climb out of Vigo, but once we got on the trail it was cool and lovely. We walked around 13 miles.

Thursday’s walk should be around the same mileage.  We are ready…
