what is a pilgrimage really about ?

19 May

I have reached Santiago De Compestella on the Camino Del Norte. I have walked about 800kms. It is difficult to really say the distance as some days one has to stay on the road or take a diversion. I have been walking for 28 days. I can´t get home until my booked flight until Tuesday.  I want to get home. The reasons people walk a Camino are very different. I walked into the Cathedral yesterday and saw many priests in the Confessional boxes. Last year I did not see this. I asked was it possible to receive absolution in Ingles and it was. So for me this was a high moment.  I have some one on my side, my Camino friends from last year know what this is like. This year I was lucky again to gain 3 Camino friends. We all walked well together. But when I took off like a diesel train on the last day into Santiago my friends could not believe it. I could not believe it. My legs were like new. I could hear the Santiago calling. (at home I hear Bulmers!)

I will probably not post again until I make plans for next year. (We hope to walk Portugues together in April)

I will amend my photo blogs and let all my friends know how things go at home.
We got a Misa this morning at 8.30 beside the cafe we intented to have breakfast in, the locals were going to Fatima on pilgrimage. It was just us and them.. blessed. adios.
