Yesterday I had a thought I hadn't had before. The odd thing abut the thought was that I should have had it a long time ago. I had the thought that I was actually walking somewhere. I wasn't just getting up in the morning, making sure to get a good breakfast and heading to the next town. No, this is the idea that I am walking some place way, way in the distance. Someplace that is very holy. Someplace I won't get very soon.It strikes me that I often live life like this. I wake up worrying what I have to do that day without thinking too much of where I am really heading. I really like this new outlook. I am headed to some place far, far away, with a purpose. And I am in no hurry to get there. How bout you? Where are you headed today?
Today was my easiest day yet. Don't get me wrong, I am still tired and my feet are still sore, but it wasn't a struggle. We walked 21km through Azofra and Ciracueña to reach Santo Domingo de Calzada. Another very historical town that goes way back to the Middle Ages. We mainly walked through vineyards but also just hit some very open stretches. The weather was perfect for walking and we saw many families out as it is a national holiday. We ended the day by taking a tour of the tower and cathedral. I will post those pictures tomorrow but let's just say for now it was the most impressive and awe inspiring cathedral I have seen on the trip thus far.
