Sarria – I Walk Slowly

So anybody that has tried to keep up with me at an airport knows I don't walk all that slowly. I usually hurry up and wait. I find that a strange thing is happening to me on the Camino. I am walking slower and slower. It seems like I am losing that part of me that is in a hurry. Thank God! I am finding that even in the rain now I just want to take it easy. No sense in hurrying. Where ever I am headed will be there when I get there. The easier I take it, the easier it is. I am really loving it.

Well today we made it to Sarria. This is kind of a milestone because we now only have 100 km to go. Less than a month ago that sounded like a long way to go but now it sounds like a walk in the park. Even more reason to take it slowly. So I can savor every bit of it.

Today was another rainy day but I managed to get a few shots. Enjoy!

    1. Yep my brotha. It teaches me to slow down and most importantly to walk at my pace, not that of another. Lots of time to find it fo sure!
