16th of June – Is Walking the Camino Selfish?

Rob The Traveller

For those of you who’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that about three weeks into the Camino, I went through a bit of a low period, feeling that I was rather being selfish taking six weeks out. Why would I think that? I think for many reasons, not least of which was that I had left a lot of people back home covering for me at work, and also had left my wife behind to deal with some family matters.

6th of June – The Final Day | From Rua to Santiago

Rob The Traveller

I’ve had a really peaceful day walking from Rua to Santiago. Right now I’m at Monte do Gozo (the hill of joy) and I can finally see Santiago below me. Just another 3 or 4 kilometers to go! I’m standing next to the two statues of the pilgrims, totally alone, not a sound except the wind and the tweeting birds.
