Santiago Church, Camino Pause: 428 kmJuly 18, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F
Made the decision this morning to pause the Camino journey for this year. Eric is in too much pain to continue. Seems like Villafranca is the perfect place to pause. At this Church of Santiago there is the Door of Forgiveness where pilgrims could receive the certificate needed to receive their absolution (which they referred to as jubilee, as in Leviticus 25) if they were not well enough to continue.
We walked 428 km (265 miles). Crossed the Pyrenees mountains, walked through multiple regions, across some of the meseta, and walked up the highest points on the camino. I look forward to finishing up another time, perhaps with more friends and family.Read more
