    Johnnie's Library

    October 8, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    My last day in Santiago was another great day. I started with mass at the Cathedral then visited St. Francis church and the monastery founded by him 800 years ago. It has been difficult to impossible to find lodging in Santiago and there are now many large tour groups visiting. We are so lucky to be staying with a friend. I also visited the church of Saint Fructuosus of Tarragona which is an important Saint in Spain from the third century and a small church I walk by many times a day. Next we were invited to see Johnnie's Library which means to "stop by for a drink." Justin and Kate from East Texas were there too. Johnnie first met Kate on the Camino in 2007 so it was a good reunion for them. Kate and Justin have been married three years now and just walked the Camino Francês together. Johnnie was an excellent host with an excellent collection of Scotch whisky and being Scottish is quite proud of it and shared it freely. He even had my favorite non-alcoholic beer so everyone was happy. What a great last day in Santiago.Read more
