Hola to you all. I have returned safe, if not entirely sound, from my six week journey to Santiago and Finisterre. A truly wonderful experience full of discovery, adventure, friendship, and a lot of soul searching. At some point I may write about it, but in the meantime there is plenty of catching up to do on Paddy, the Broken Road and the successful Transylvanian Book Festival.
I will try to resume normal service as soon as I can.
Meanwhile, if you are thinking of taking any one of the many pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela, all I can say is go, travel light, and travel slow. There were people out there from 10 to 91 years.
