    Withdrawal symptoms

    October 1, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    It was a strange morning... Normally we would wake up early, quietly pack our bags (so not to wake the whole room) and head off for the day's walk before sunrise. Breakfast was as we walked and usually just muesli bars.

    But this morning, we slept in till 7:30am, had a hot coffee and toast on proper chairs/ table and got to call the boys. It was so nice and civilised. Our first day not walking... I'm not sure how we feel, I think we're having withdrawal symptoms already! We did see posters for "Camino Psychologists" in Santiago & Finisterre for walkers 🤔

    We also went out for lunch and pigged out on burgers at Goiko Grill (a popular gourmet burger place in Spain) and we felt a bit guilty. I guess it's the start of our "other" holiday now except we still look like hikers with our whole two changes of clothes 😬

    Tomorrow we are back to Madrid for a couple of days before flying home. I guess all good things must eventually come to an end.
