In Santiago right now...


Santiago de Compostella...

...was further away than I remember.

The last 3 kilometres seemed like forever and my footsteps were really heavy.

When I finally arrived at in front of the huge catedral I decided that I would treat myself good. Really good. So I have checked in to a **** "Albergue" - with a huge bed, a big bathtub... I also signed up for a VERY good massage which was done by Toni. Also tomorrow there will be a huge breakfast... (buffet - with EVERYTHING).

All day I have been in an arguement with myself. I cannot decide wheter I should continue on foot to Finisterre or if I should go by bus. A part of me really want to continue on foot, another part of me says "enough". But of course, I cannot stay in my 4 star "albergue" as this will empty my bankaccount completely.

By the way, I went to the pilgrims office to get my compostella. Now I have 4 of them. My name in Latin Annam (I think it used to be Annem!?).

In a second I wil go get something really healthy to eat, as I am hungry and I loooong for something really good. (besides Pulpo Galego). So I only hope that the restaurant I have in mind have a table for me... as I do not have anyone to eat with tonight... there is no one here I know, they wil all arrive the next couple of days.

I will write more about the journey later. Right now I just wanted to check in and let you all know that I am here... I feel good and also tired.

Now to the restaurant.
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Enjoy the luxury. In the event that you decide not to walk to Finisterra, you might want to look into hiring a car rather than taking the bus. If it is just you the bus would be more economical but if fellow pilgrims go in on a car with you it makes for a much nicer day--You can take the coastal route and stop in some of the lovely villages there, go at your own pace. We stopped at an albergue on the way back to Santiago to visit some friends who were walking. There are some car rental agencies at the train station in Santiago. Whichever you choose, enjoy it.
Congratulations, Annette!
Watch out for the albergues in Finisterre and Corcubion... I hear they are struggling with the bugs, too. You´ve been so lucky so far, but you don´t wanna push it!

I´ll be interested in seeing what you decide on this one. After that night of luxury, I´ll bet you´ll be back to your high-energy self and just step out walking again.

So nice to see you in Ponferrada!
There were bed bugs in Finisterre several weeks ago ... but it was cleaned.

Nothing similar in Corcubion, as far as I know.

Buen Camino, enjoy it.
