Celebrate Good Times C’mon!

Just a quick celebratory email to say that i´m at the albergue in Monte del Gozo, on a hill overlooking Santiago de Compostella — my desitination for the last 6 weeks.

I couldn´t stop weeping with reliev and happiness when I caught sight of the city as I crested the hill. I think that is why they call it the Mount of Joy.

Today, we walked about 34.4km (you do the math), my longest walk ever in about 10.5 hours, which included stops for food and beer. 🙂 I am so proud of myself. I am so happy. I am really astonished that I made it so far on my own two feet.

 

Tomorrow morning we´ll walk the remaining 4km to the Cathedral for Mass and we´re hoping that the botafumiero (look it up) will be in use on a Sunday. Then I´ll be in Santiago until Monday or Tuesday when I´ll begin walking the 100km to Finisterre on the Atlantic ocean.

I am thinking of you… I will say a prayer for you tomorrow at Saint James´ grave… and I hope you know how grateful I am for you and all of your support before, during, and after this incredible trip. I love you so, so much.

xoxo
Jen
