I thought I would be ready for it to end but rather I feel sad. It has become my life. Simple. Get up, walk 15-17 miles; get a place to sleep; take off my shoes and put on my sandals; shower; wash out my hiking clothes; have a beer and something to eat. Then see the local sights which usually included a beautiful 500-700 year old church and then take a nap. Repeat same the next day. The Camino provides what you need when you need it. It has provided solitude, friendships, inspiration and lessons.
In acceptance (you can’t fight weather it will be what it will be); in patience (I will get to the next town when I get there) and gratitude for being physically able to do the camino, for the beauty I experienced and for simply being alive.
For the past 2 weeks I have been walking in gratitude and peace. The Camino has provided many lessons with more to come after I get home I’m sure.
