Hi everyone
Well we are literally just one more day away from Santiago and my final destination. It is very hard to believe that we are so close! Today we walked about 20kms through beautiful woodlands including many groves of eucalyptus trees so at times it felt just like being back at home. Truly amazing!
Bill is certainly getting stronger each day and with another 700kms or so I´m sure would be doing the camino just fine! Actually he is doing really well. I can remember those first few days of acclimatising to the camino... the long days walking, carrying that pack on your back and managing the heat. I had forgotten all that as now it just seems like second nature.

I am feeling somewhat confused at present as to how to feel... if that makes sense at all. I am told not to expect too much tomorrow and I am trying hard not to build up any expectations of the arrival in santiago but it´s hard not to after 5 weeks making my way there. Having Bill here though is the best thing. It is so wonderful to be sharing this last week with him. I am being spoilt already regards some of the luxuries of life... it hasn´t been albergues but hostals which is really comfortable... you appreciate the smaller things in life after such a time walking!

Anyway... I have loved having you all along with me. Thanks agian for all your great comments, support and encouragement. We get home on Sunday 18th October and in between we hopefully enjoy seeing more of Spain. Just how I go not wlaking 20-30 kms a day I don´t know but I do know I will be happy to be in different clothes!!!!!

Think of uds sometime around 8 or 9 pm Friday night... the journey´s end! We will be celebrating!!!

Cheers
Karen
