It has been over a week since we arrived in Santiago de Compostela and after winding our way by car from Finisterre on the west coast of Spain along the northern coast through the towns of Muxia, Ribadeo, Gijon, Ribadesella, Bilbao and San Sebastian, we turned south to Zaragoza and finally to the Monestary in Montserrat within view of Barcelona. We spent two days in Barcelona before saying goodbye to Spain this morning.
Renee and the kids are on their flight home while I just landed in Berlin to attend one last meeting before returning home tomorrow.
It will take some time for the lessons from our Camino to settle in, however when I think about what compels me to take every journey I’ve ever taken, the reason is always the same. It is our hope that if our children learn nothing else from our Camino, they will learn this simple truth and seek to make their lives one of endless exploration.
