The big map o the Caminos de Santiago




I arrived this morning in time to get my compostela and attend the pilgrim Mass to hear that I and two others made it from Malaga. Tomorrow I head for Finisterre.

If I were to write a book about my experience it would have to have the subtitle of 'From Itinerant Criminal to Holy Pilgrim in under seven Weeks'. I could also put in something about weight loss and maybe make a quid.

It has been a wonderful experience and quite different from what I expected which serves me right for having expectations.

Do give the Camino Mozarabe a go whilst it is still possible to have it to yourself.

The Via de la Plata will undoubtedly be quite commercial in the not too distant future.

Buen Camino to one and all.
