The Road to Santiago… Halfway There.

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

We can sum up the start of the final week of this journey with one word…. Anticipation!  It always seems as if the journey gets longest when you are near the end.  We have had some great weather days to start our journey this week.   As expected the trail is much busier!

Pilgrims to the front of us....

And Pilgrims to the back!
And Pilgrims to the back!

There also seems to be something we are calling “Camino Lite” which occurs when a big bus comes and adds Pilgrims onto the trail at particular points and picks them up a few miles later.  I can see how this might be an issue with some of the long-mileage Pilgrims.

Our first day out of Sarria we had a 12 mile walk to Portomarin.  We crossed the 100 kilometer barrier during the day which was a welcome sight!

100 kilometers to go!

At the end of our day was a bridge over the lake and a long set of stairs up to our hotel.

The next two days brought us through Palas de Rei and Malide.  We are now only 50 kilometers out!

We have changed up our exit plans a bit to fly from London versus Paris and only take a day.  Life at home is getting pretty “big in the window” and we are both looking forward to the new challenges, adventures and friends that await summer in Wisconsin!

Love to All!

  1. I have a wordpress blog having a lot of photos hosted on third party websites. I want all the pictures to become hosted within my wordpress websites. I have a tendency want to manually download all images and replace them in the posts, i need some thing to do that immediately..

  2. i want to be able to do that kind of work together with computers, but they don’t necessarily pay that well (40k a yr). Are there any various other computer careers that involve repair work, ect. that pay in least 10k higher yearly? Thanks!. thanks a lot anyway ppl i got a few information from my dad who also works in it department. he offered me some help on the concern..

  3. I’m just creating a brand-new blog about literature ( what We’ve read, what I’m reading), but Now i’m having trouble considering a title. I like the idea of something relating to an obsession with novels but I believe bookophilia is certainly on the typical side. How do you feel about Litophilia? Is it too comparable to “lithophilia” Which means the love of stones? Any concepts? Thanks!.

  4. I actually is a 19 year old female quadriplegic and a mother of a two-year-old daughter. I was not able to function because of my disability but I do possess a voice-activated computer and I know a lot regarding computers and the Internet. I wish to start a website I do not know about what. I need CONCEPTS! I would like for making some profit on my website yet I do not really know how to do this or how to get companies to pay to put ads up on my website. I no longer even know where to go to start my own internet site. I need plenty of help if someone would like to help me out or maybe be partners with me when the website starts making a profit you will get some of the income..

  5. I’m just just having this crazy idea, I’m just planning to post comic webpages or whitening strips on Tumblr, since the generating revenue from Google Adsense, I might profit from this, hehe (me gloating like an nonresident Ferengi). Can this idea work?.

  9. May I simply say what a comfort to discover a person that really knows what they are discussing on the internet. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you are not more popular since you certainly possess the gift.

  10. I actually is aside of a commitee that is attempting to start a clothing company. I was in charge of designing the clothing website because for at the moment you can just order stuff online. But I was simply wondering how do you start a site for a clothes company? What are some good site places to register for a site..

  11. Solid, well-researched content. I just passed this on to a fellow student who’s been involved in some research of their own on this topic. To show his appreciation, she just asked me to have a drink! So, let me express my gratitude by saying:, thanks for the meal – LOL!

  14. I found myself happy to find this excellent site. I needed to thanks for your personal
    time only for this wonderful read!! I definitely really liked every little bit of it and i perhaps you
    have book-marked to think about new things with your blog.

  15. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  16. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  17. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  18. We are thinking about becoming a ‘ProBlogger”. I know Running a blog is a very slow business, but still i want to understand how much time does it take me personally to start generating at least $100.. I can work everyday for approximately eleven hrs. May i expect start earning hundred buck within 8 weeks.. Please folks help, produce some idea on how much hard work it’s going to..

  19. I should add that I’m not really that specialized, so a simple solution that is simple to use would be appropriate of the two… The website will work in a similar way to gumtree’s categorized ads. If this is possible would I actually also be in a position to add a charging mechanism to get the advertisements using Joomla or WordPress… Any help would be very much appreciated… Thank you..

  20. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger,
    and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice
    practices and we are looking to trade methods with others, be sure to
    shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  21. Now i am studying meant for my bachelor degree in computer technology, and I would continue on to obtain a masters degree. I have my A+ and Network+ accreditations, and I’m just planning on obtaining Linux, Network Security, as well as the Microsoft qualifications… Can I get a job doing computer forensics with this? If not, what must i do to boost my likelihood of getting a computer forensics job?.. Thanks. Somewhat more info: I actually do more programming than anything at all with computer systems, but I am just pretty good with the non-programming aspect too..

  22. I am planning on being a innovative writing teacher for my Senior project. The issue is, I won’t be able to think of a grade that kids begin creative composing. I would rather deal with young kids than older types because in the long run I want to give them a book of the classes gathered works. I was thinking third Grade, yet I aren’t remember when I started innovative writing. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.: ).

  23. You’re so awesome! I actually do not believe We have
