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 18) ( Leon to Villar Mazarife ) 20 k or 12.5 miles


Only walked about 5 hours today as it was a planned short day but boring. I realized I am not 2 days ahead of schedule but 3 days and not sure how to handle it. Either slow down or find something to do in Santiago. My flight to Seville is on the 25th. I am also including photos of "shelters" previous pilgrims used. Most were initially caves dug into the side if hills. These are scattered along the Camino.

Things to Note:
(1) I have noticed some are walking part of the day and catching a taxi to the next town. Not a lot but a few.

(2) Many are sending their bags by a designated taxi to their next destination and only carrying a small day pack for $5 per trip. That would make it so much easier but add $140 to the trip. 

(3) Bikers seem to have it so much easier.
