Last Friday I arrived in Santiago de Compostela, having set out from Lisbon on 18 September. 24 days, no rest days, walked every millimetre, carried my pack all the way, 71 years of age, very satisfied with myself but also feeling really humble.
Yesterday I came back to Lisbon ahead of my flight back to Australia tomorrow. As I did last year, each day I did a little sketch of something that caught my eye that day, in a dedicated sketchbook. At Santiago the Pilgrim Centre volunteer stamped my sketch of the cathedral. When I got back to Lisbon I went to the Sé Cathedral and the man kindly stamped my first sketch of this Camino.
I have to say that coming back to 20191015_131138.jpg20191016_175953.jpgthe Lisbon cathedral was probably even more moving than arriving in Santiago!!
