… We are on our way to Finisterre. After 5 days of walking covering over 115 kms, we walked into Santiago at about 11.30am, making really good time. We were delighted, but not emotional as some said we would be, maybe just relief?! We missed Joe though, who had covered over 400km yet had to leave the Camino a little early to meet some commitments, what a shame.
We rested our weary bones that afternoon, went to the 7.30pm Pilgrim Mass which included the Botafumerio, it’s not always included. I’ll try to upload a video later.
Along the route we had walked and partied with two girls from Boston – Maria and Nancy. They were brilliant craic so it was great to head out after the mass, and celebrate our compestellas. A fun night!
Saturday we spent getting ourselves organised for our 90km walk to Finisterre, accommodation has to be booked along the 4 days we have chosen to take, some take only 3 days which makes for long walking days. We set off this morning from Santiago and arrived in Negerira today before lunch. We are chilling and relaxing now, and enjoying the fiesta that is underway in the town – brass band and fireworks and all! They must have known we were coming 😉
My feet continue to be a problem. But I have walked through the blisters like a true pilgrim should and I hope to arrive in Finisterre on Wednesday in one piece ….. Then I am never walking again! Slight exaggeration but you get my drift.
I am on my sisters iPad so loading photos is a little challenging. However, check out my Facebook page to get all the latest. I’ll try to post my FB page link for you but maybe you already have it.
