I've got news for you: Jesus didn't start in St Jean, Le Puy, or Rome for Santiago, either. Leaving Sarria towards Santiago. It's been a different Camino the last two days, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The minimum distance that one must walk to earn a Compostela in Santiago is 100 km. Sarria... Continue Reading →
A dear friend joked in a comment yesterday that she can't wait for me to get home and tell the real stories I'm not writing about here on the blog. When I called her last night to check in, she pointed out that I seem to be holding back, being very "nice" or "pc" with... Continue Reading →
Sarria.This is the beginning of the end, my friends. Sarria is roughly 100 km from Santiago, the minimum distance for one to be granted a Compostela in Santiago.

WordPress will let me post text-only entries and let me grab photos already uploaded on cell data, but not upload new media. The room I am in now happens to... Continue Reading →
