We arrived in Santiago at 12:15 in the afternoon on October 24th. We are two very happy gals!  The final walk, while a short seven kilometers, felt particularly long especially as we wound our way nearly 3k through the city of Santiago to the Cathedral.  It was an emotional arrival to say the least.

Perfect weather on our last day.

On approach to Santiago:


At last!!


We then ran into two Dutch women from the Norte that we had not seen in a few weeks. Wonderful to see familiar faces.

Thanks to all for following along. I can’t tell you how much your support meant to us over the past six weeks. There were many challenging moments, both physical and emotional, but it was knowing that family and friends were cheering us on that often gave us the courage and determination to take the next step.


I will continue to post but now we are off the Camino and truly in the vacation mode.

I decided to walk across Spain to pursue the many things I love about life: the great outdoors, spending time with friends, meeting new people, food, wine, music, and challenging the physical self. I'm fortunate to have a wonderful husband who has provided me with the encouragement, support, and love I've needed over the past several months of training and preparing.
