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.
