Day 30: In the End

While it will certainly take time to truly recognize and understand the meanings we derive from this pilgrimage, this past day has shed some light on the impact it's had on us. The day was, as you'd imagine after such a trip, one where we moved slow. We treated ourselves to the extra perks that... Continue Reading →

Day 29: Buen Camino!

Arzúa to Santiago. 39.4 km / 24.5 miles. They say the Camino provides. And so it does. The morning started out not quite as magical as the others.

Day 27: Three Ems

It was not a conversation either of us wanted to have. It... Continue Reading →

Day 21: Be. Here. Now.

Foncebadón to Ponferrada. 27.5 km / 17.1 miles There is just something about those first few hours before sunrise. The air is crisp; the sky, inky; the stars after the last mountain town this side of the hill fill the horizon like a sea of diamonds. This, you know, is IT. Somewhere admist the silence,...
