Well, I finished it - my fourth time.

Camino(s) past & future
CF(x4), Fisterra/Muxía(x2), VdlP, Jerusalem, VF, Walsingham,
C inglés. 2019? Who knows! ;-)
Mixed feelings,...
It may surprise some of you - those who haven’t walked it in July - but it was VERY empty. Walked on my own but for a few people I encountered (2!). Both lovely.
By Belorado I thought ,this is me done, I am off! I must add it was raining most afternoons, after I had arrived.
As things happened, it wasn’t the end. To cut a long story short, I met with my walking mate in Burgos and off we went on....
Arrived in Santiago with a few days to spare and instead of the usual finish (Fisterra/Muxía) decided to go for the Inglés Camino.
It was a needed respite after the crowds from Sarria. Apparently it was worse than during the Holy Year.... I had never experienced so many people.... There were times when you just couldn’t walk past people, there were so many!
But I am glad I went on, it gave me time to think.... It wasn’t the blissful, perfect Camino I experienced only two years ago, it was just ...different.
And I am thankful for every step I made.
I am back home now and reflecting...
Nothing happens by chance....
In Santiago I made the effort and was rewarded to meet a wonderful lady (from this forum).
Thank you and God bless you :)
That’s all from me tonight!



Camino(s) past & future
All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
Welcome home and well done, @domigee - you prevailed!
And wonderful also that you got to walk the peaceful and beautiful Ingles after the traffic jams in the last days on the Frances.
Good morning. Have a question, it has nothing to do with this post.
Did you get my pm or did something go wrong with it.
Regards Peter.
