    The end of a chapter

    After a simple breakfast in a bar I say goodbye to my three friends (Mike, Baptise and Juan-Marie). The hug I get from Mike expresses the warm bond we've built in such a short space of time and I feel very said as I watch them walk away.
    Today I celebrate the last day of lonesome walking and it has to be done in style, by myself. I only have 9km ahead of me and I am determined to walk it as slowly as my sanity allows me. I take my first break after 3km and see many pilgrims pass by hurriedly, they have already missed the opportunity to attend the 12 o'clock mass in Santiago. I meet German flute player Nicole once again and I buy him a tea to help him achieve his 0 euro day.
    My second break is unexpectedly lovely. The people around me all seem to want to enjoy every last inch of camino left and so the atmosphere is relaxed and happy. A couple is walking with their 1.5 year old son (on the back, they're not making him walk :-) and I watch the little boy run around and play with acorns. People talk about feeling strange about this being so close to the end and I understand and share this feeling. I spend the last kms thinking about all the special people I met on the camino and feel grateful.
    And now I'm at the terrace of a local bar at my destination of the day enjoying some lovely warm rays. I'm feeling strange, happy and a bit anxious. At some point today I will be reunited with Marc and that will signify the end of and important chapter of this journey.... and I wonder, what will lie ahead of us...?

    Etapa 6: Ribadisio a Lavacolla

    May 26, 2017 in Spain

    35 kilómetros! Fue una etapa muy larga, la más larga de todas pero la hicimos ésta vez bien. Salimos muy madrugados, a las 6am ya estábamos caminando. Caminamos con paso suave pero parejo. Hoy fue un día lleno de bosques espectaculares, lluvia todo el camino y un olor a bosque muy especial. Lástima que no se puedan grabar los olores.
    Nuestro primer día de lluvia, y la lluvia lo hizo muy especial.
    Fue una etapa en total con parada a desayunar, almorzar y paradas a descansar de cerca de 9 horas

    Costos del viaje

    May 27, 2017 in Spain

    El viaje en realidad puede salir muy barato. El mayor costo son los tiquetes. Se puede vivir muy barato por el camino:
    - 1 noche. Entre 6 a 10 Euros por litera
    - 1 desayuno (café, jugo natural naranja y tostadas). 5 Euros por persona
    - 1 almuerzo. Generalmente una parada o un mecato de sanduche comprado el día anterior por 5 Euros.
    - 1 comida "del peregrino". 10 Euros persona. Incluye entrada, fuerte, postre y "vino a voluntad"
    - agua casi siempre gratis en las fuentes

    Se puede vivir entre 26 a 30 Euros por persona por día con dormida y comida completa. Y sumarle otros 5 Euros para antojos del camino
