Guess what. It was flat and straight today. What a surprise.
Tomorrow is Leon, which is the unofficial end of the Meseta. So the flat straight stages are nearing an end.
Bill, how long do you have to go until you finish the Camino, and what’s on your mind as you get near the finish?
I should arrive in Santiago on October 22. I’ll take one rest day in Santiago before a one day hike to Finisterre and another one day hike to Muxia. So my last day of hiking will be October 25. I’m then taking a mini-vacation to Porto and Madrid before flying home on November 2.
So I still have about 17 days on the Camino, and 25 days until I’m back home.
As for what I’m thinking, mostly… “Is it over yet?!”
Actually, I think my most common thought is… appreciate the moment. It’s easy to take things for granted after 7 1/2 weeks, but I try hard not to. In the future, when I miss the Camino, I want to know I made the most of it that I could.

I’m a few weeks behind you, walking slowly. Will arrive in SJPDP tomorrow. Have appreciated your posts! Is it really just one day to walk to Finisterre? I didn’t realize it was that close.
Congrats. No it’s 4 days but I’m cutting it short. Taking a bus to Cee and walking last 10km to ocean. I’m too tired mentally to do the whole thing.
