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 110 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.

SPAIN, CAMINO DE SANTIAGO (Day 10) (Atapuerca to Tajados) 31.2 k or 19 miles

September 2, 2015 

Not a pretty hiking day as went through the industrial city of Burgos which took forever. I realize now that I do not take enough breaks as my high ankles are in pain. But 14 hours of rest and I am good again. Supposedly hiking for an then resting 10 minutes is what is recommended. I hiked 7.5 hours today with a 15 minute lunch and another 6 minute rest stop. I feel like Forest Gump when he started running. Lol  guess when I get "tired" I will quit. Hahaha  I needed to get at least 2 days ahead of the 34 day proposed schedule and now I am almost 3 days ahead after 10 days.  The problem is albergues don't open until 1 pm so might as well walk. I can rest next life.
