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!
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!
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!
