“The End of the World.”
That’s what ancient Europeans called Finisterre. It’s one of the most western points on continental Europe, so, at one point in history, it was truly the end of the known world.
Today, I walked the final 10 kilometers out to Finisterre lighthouse (and back). Lots of great views. Despite threatening skies and gusty winds, there was very little rain.
Bill, when is you pilgrimage finally going to be over?
When I planned this journey, I anticipated walking 1000 miles. Due to an injury and some schedule changes, I calculated that I’ve only walked 977 miles.
I’ll be in Porto Portugal tomorrow. The Camino Portuguese goes right through Porto, so I hope later this week to make up the final 23 miles on that trail. If not, a Camino trail also goes through Madrid, and I’ll be there for a few days. One way or another I’ll get to 1000!
Then I’ll enter the next phase of pilgrimage… Camino life.
