When I checked in last January, I had planned to walk from Oviedo to Finisterre. While that is still very tempting, my itinerary has changed. And that’s fine.
Burgos to Leon
Leon to Oviedo (by bus)
Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela
Then back to Madrid and home.
Here’s what I have learned in packing for this particular 300 mile trek:
It’s actually the anonymity of being a pilgrim that is the most appealing to me now. I will not be who I am in New York, I will be who I am. Stripped of my friends and my family, my home and my surroundings, I love how I become, as I have said a number of times in other situations, like one little votive candle in a sea of lights.
So, I am excited, nervous, happy about walking again. It is my bliss.
