About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Day 14 Camino De Santiago ( Carrion to Ledigos ) 23 k or 14 miles

September 6th

Had planned on walking 3 more kilometers today but saw an Albergue (hostel) that had a private room for $15. Hmmm private room $15 or dorm with 32 people for $8. I splurged. Lol  i also am still having problems with my rt. high ankle area. Been hurting for about 8-9 days so that's not good. Hope a little extra rest will help and hope to stay away from 30k hikes now that I am 2 days ahead of schedule. No swelling yet so that is good. Everyone is hobbling so not a big deal. This is an amazing adventure BUT very little fun involved. Don't think Pilgrimages were supposed to be fun. Hard to get excited about waking up at 6am and realizing you have to walk for next 7 hours over and over and over. 

The Good News is I am almost halfway to Santiago. The Bad News is I am only about half the way to Santiago. "And that's about all I have to say about that."  Forest Gump

Plenty of time for thinking deep thoughts and planning more trips!
