    Santiago - July 27th

    July 27, 2018 in Spain β‹… β›… 17 Β°C

    I don’t really have any words to describe how wonderful and surreal today was. πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•

    Alan, Paku and I entered the city together and, as we neared the cathedral, Andy greeted us with big hugs. Then, we continued through the tunnel and out into the plaza in front of the cathedral where Paul and Mirabelle ran up to hug and congratulate us. It was such a feeling of “Wow! We are finished. We really did it!” Groups of hikers dotted the plaza taking pictures, hugging, and just hanging out. It was kind of like we had all just won the big game and we were all discussing the details πŸ™‚

    Today has been spent with our very special Camino friends, and it ended with what had to be the most amazing dinner. There were 14 of us...all ages...celebrating our time together on this journey It was like the perfect ending to a movie that we actually lived. πŸ’• I told Alan there is no way my little video snippets can convey what we experienced.

    The first video is of our arrival to Santiago, and then the 2nd is from our dinner together...probably the sweetest birthday celebration for dear Mariana whose giggles and happiness for life we will truly miss. ❀️

    We are going to take it easy for a couple of days, explore this city, then fly back home via Iceland. So, this adventure is now complete. β€οΈπŸ™‚

    Thank you all for taking the time to follow along.
