Having walked (west) into Santiago de Compostela, Spain many times it is now my time to walk home (east). When I started researching the Camino de Santiago in 1999 I first learned of the returning pilgrim. I have wanted to walk east since 1999. Some folks walk home after their arrival in Santiago or Finisterre. However, for many pilgrims there is a time constraint and they can only allow for the four to six weeks walking west. This is my case. In the future I would love to walk west the 800 kms (500 miles) to Santiago de Compostela (SdC) from Saint-Jean-de-Port (SJPP), France then turn around and walk east the 800 kms to SJPP - but this would take ten-twelve weeks for me.
I followed my pilgrim friends Sue Kenney and Sarah Hoskin Clymer on their return journeys and all the time I was wishing that I could be with them.
Uploading photographs along the Way is not always available (or easy) so here are photographs from a previous walk.
