Maybe you've heard that the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimageunfurls in three sections—one each for the body, brain, and soul. The last third starts around Ponferrada and experiences Galicia. It's an enchanted, green place of Celts, fog, and greenery. It's the place a star once shone over a field. The test of this last third is volume. Many individuals join the way to Santiago only the last hundred kilometers. New faces with even more current rigging appear all energetic and energized. The trail itself has less space between pioneers. While this meshes on numerous, it additionally shows an otherworldly open door. While strolling ecstatically alone on a delightful morning in Galicia, I was swarmed by a gathering of gleaming, daypack-wearing pioneers. At the point when a couple of halted mid-trail to upset their iPods, I'm not glad to concede how enraged I felt at that time. This is my trail, I pondered internally. I'm the genuine explorer.

Later that morning, I met Paula, an apparel store proprietor from Milan, strolling her first day of the Camino. Regardless of our dialect contrasts, we figured out how to visit a large portion of the day about our lives, where to discover water, and great nourishments to attempt. We snickered a great deal. As we strolled, a nearby man gave me a hand-cut strolling stick, and I offered it to Paula as a blessing. She expressed gratitude toward me with tears in her eyes. "I just have seven days," she said. "It was insane endeavoring to escape... With my significant other and kids and my business, I didn't have room schedule-wise to get a stick. Also, I extremely needed one." Later, when we separated, she tenderly grasped my face and stated, "You are my Camino blessed messenger." What a blessing Paula gave me. On the off chance that I'd forgotten about her as a shallow "tourigrino" concentrated on getting a compostela, I would have passed up a major opportunity. Rather, I associated with an excellent soul on an undeniable profound adventure—regardless of whether it was shorter than my own. She helped me understand that I can't know someone else's heart. On the off chance that we pick, the last third of this journey can demonstrate to us what living the Camino in our regular day to day existences will resemble. Despite the fact that it's anything but difficult to despise the huge gatherings toward the end, they are our Camino heavenly attendants. Some of the time the very thing you oppose can turn into your educator.
