May 29th, 2018. O Pedrouzo to Santiago de Compostela. Camino de Santiago.
I made it. I made it to Santiago de Compostela. It’s been 45 days to walk 740km and 1,318,191 steps. ❣️
And I am tired. But I’m happy too. There were days I wasn’t sure I’d make it, but when I walked into the square today, where the Cathedral stands, I cried. I knew then I had done it. And I wanted a beer to celebrate. After taking photos of course!
It was a day of thinking and talking through what we had learned on this journey – oh we came up with a list of blog
post ideas! Did we write any of them down? Oh course not, but they were good!!
But, once we were close, silence descended. We keep pushing onwards. We even skipped our usual bacon and eggs this morning!!
Now, I want to celebrate with a beer and then sleep – and sleep more – without having to wake and walk tomorrow!
Holy shit. I walked from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela! (Give or take a couple of k’s.).
45 days and 1,318,191 steps later. ❣️
