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 26 on Camino ( Triacastela to Portomarin ) 39.7 kilometers or 24.67miles

9/18/15

No rain and day turned out beautiful. Plan was to walk 23k today but so nice I walked over 8 hours and almost 25 miles. The not so fun part was that there was a LOT of climbing today.  Good day but tiring. Need some magical elixer in a wine glass if I can get out of the bed. Lol  New Pilgrims everywhere. If you walk at least the last 100 kilometers or 62 miles you get the Compostela, a certificate of completion, written in Latin and personalized with your name and date of completion. Sarria is a little over 100 kilometers so a lot of new pilgrims are flying, busing or taking train there to begin. So very crowded now. Since I always walk alone I am looking for space between the group in front and ones behind to enjoy my solitude. The French , especially the women, talk at the same time and non stop. I usually have to speed up my pace when I encounter them.

Only 89 kilometers left.
