Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

Day 33 O Pedrouzo to Santiago

Last walking day - so close. First km marker I saw was 790 just after Roncevalles 32 days ago. 
There was still some beautiful land to enjoy before the bustle of Santiago. 

Unfortunately the Catedral is still covered with scaffolding as it was two years ago. The tower that has been finished looks wonderful though. 

I made it just in time for the noon pilgrims' mass. Standing room only. 

The crowds in Santiago were a bit of a shock after walking through many nearly deserted areas.
