Approximately 1584 kilometers down, and only 16 to go. Hard to believe, but I should be there by mid-morning.
For me it’s never been just about getting to Santiago. It’s always been more about the journey, than the destination. Surely, though, arriving in Santiago will be quite an experience. Especially because several of my “Camino Family” plan to enter the city together
15 miles today. Kristi’s good luck rain pants worked again. Rain was forecast for the whole day, but didn’t start until I arrived at my hotel.
Bill, what’s a “Camino family?”
That’s the term used to describe the close set of friends you develop as you walk the Camino.
I have found, since people travel at different speeds and stop in different towns, that you actually have several different “families” over the course of your Camino. It’s really amazing how easy it is to connect with people here. And it’s a real pleasure when people from earlier in you Camino appear again later in the journey.
I’m going to truly miss these people after I go home. I hope that many of them remain in my life going forward.
