Santiago At last!


New Member
I have just recently completed my Camino and reached the Holy City on October 16th. after 6 weeks on the trail. My Camino was spread out over a year and divided into 3 parts. In October 2008, I walked from SJPP to Logrono and during April and May of this year, I walked from Santo Domingo to Astorga. I walked from Astorga to Santiago during October 2009, taking about 2 weeks to reach my final destination.

Looking back on it all, the Camino for me was one of the greatest experiences of my lifetime and I will never forget the places visited and the other pilgrims that I met on my way. As a not too fit 58 year old Irishman, if I can do it - anyone can.

Buen camino

sorry I have only just seen your post but I´ve been away walking the Via de la Plata for the past 7-8 weeks with little internet access and am only now catching up on all the posts. Very glad to hear you finished your camino. I have good memories of meeting you (albeit relatively briefly) on the Camino Frances in October last year. I hope this is not the end of the camino for you though and that maybe you´ll walk other routes.

Best wishes

Congratulations Paul :D I liked the measured way you did your camino, avoiding the winning and striving race that a few pilgrims favour.
