Nice day on the Camino

June 13, 2015, Sarria

Today was simple and nice.  The walk from Triacastela to Sarria was a short 12 miles so it only took about four hours.  The path was mostly through woods and had just enough hills and little villages to make it interesting.  I walked all day with a young man from Germany who spoke very good English.  Our conversation, like most Camino conversations, varied from pretty light to pretty heavy.  A nice day.

Sarria is the starting place for those pilgrims who want to walk the last 100 Km. That’s what is needed to get the Compostela in Santiago.  I expect pilgrim traffic to pick up quite a bit tomorrow.  That also means that I have five more walking days, about 70 miles to go, to complete my pilgrimage.  It’s getting so close!  This also marks the last Saturday I will be away from home.  It seems like forever since I left and I am getting very anxious to be home again with the most important person in my life.

Buen Camino!
