Well today’s the day ! We wake up early and had to wake a snoring Burny up for the second morning in a row.
After 28 days of hard slog , no trains, buses or taxis We’re here ! We will have walked every step of 800km !
We wet off in the dark again and feel really strong ! Overtaking day trippers the whole way. At 23km out we took a snap
We planned to take pics every 5km at the markers but after this every metal marker had been nicked so couldn’t. Here’s another 10km away pic instead
We plowed on with a great sense of excitement, well we have walked a long way ! This is us on the road
On the outskirts about 1km away we decided to stop, have a beer and reflect. We had 2, just letting the upcoming achievement sink in
So we set off and entered the old town shortly afterwards. We could see the cathedral in the distance so knew we were close. The buildings were magnificent. Look at that door Grace 🙂
We wound our way around small streets to a small tunnel with bagpipes playing. Through the tunnel was the cathedral. We made it ! The cathedral was covered in scaffolding but what the heck, we’re here !
Here’s mine and Bobs video, I’ll let them do the talking
We also met our friends Leike and Peit from Holland and we had a few beers to celebrate
We are going to watch mass tomorrow and see the Butafumeira (the swinging incense Burner) and welcome some other friends we have met on the way into Santiago.
1 more blog to go later today and that’s your lot 🙂
