So early on in the first week I met a German named Peter. He had done the Camino several times and said something that stuck with me all during the trip. He told me that the Camino doesn't begin until I get home. The idea is that we really have to take home all the great things we experienced and share them with the ones we love and care about. That the real purpose of doing the Camino is to bring home and implement all the wonderful things we learned so that we have not walked in vain. I like that. I am just now starting again. I am in Madrid and I get on a plane tomorrow to get back to Austin. I'm so ready! Here are a few pics from the last day in Santiago to share.
The daily posts will fade away for now, but I am sure you will continue to hear from me as the mood hits. I want to thank everybody that has followed my posts from the bottom of my heart with a true Camino hug. You all really helped make this a journey of a lifetime. Hasta luego mis amigos!
