The Wall

My, my – where has the time gone? I could say that we missed our summer blog due to the heat – you know those 40°C days where the only time to get anything done is after 6pm! And although wavelengths were radiating at high speed, it was our desire to have a pivotal milestone to share with you. And now I think we have it.Full ext eastern view

The Albergue Estrada Romano is holding her place quite regally I must say at No. 167 on the Camino de Santiago. Her crown is beaming with beautiful tile and her external walls are graced in ocher and stone. Light is now beaming through azure blue windows and doors. Ceiling rays radiate through the red transoms.

If feels as if we have just completed the toughest Camino of our lives these past five months. There were days when Geof and I felt that we could not go on – labour shortages, suppliers not returning our calls, quotes that appeared excessive due to our citizenship in Canada. At times, it felt that we had hit the “wall” as identified in endurance sports. The finish line appeared like a mirage that we couldn’t quite make; yet we had come too far to turn around.
