Wandering around our [world] has changed me more than I thought. I am not me anymore. At least I’m not the same me I was. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna in “Motorcycle Diaries”.

One of the great rights of passage for a Pilgrim when they reach Santiago de Compostella is to attend the Pilgrim’s Mass at the Cathedral.  We were lucky enough to make a Pilgrim’s Mass that includes the huge incense burner (Botafumeiro) that is swung by a rope from the Cathedral ceiling.  This was an awesome experience and a great way to cap off our journey.

After the mass we airlifted out of Spain to sunny London for a one night drop in to our favorite little French Bistro, Le Bistro Savoir Faire on Oxford Street.

So we made it back to the Midwest!  A great adventure and experience complete! Thanks for being a part of our adventure!

See you all soon!
See you all soon!
