So here I sit in Santiago only the second day in 10 weeks I don,t walk tomorrow I fly home,thats if I can get my Ryan air ticket printed off,Last Sunday I caught the bus to Finnisterre met up with lots of people not seen for days and some not for weeks it was great to see everybody again,with over a week to kill nothing left to do but walk hey thats what I do.
So walked the 30 k to Muxia (just like that) nice walk and the sun came out,then the bus to Ferrol and walked the full lengh of the English way,something I failed by 25k when last walked with Rosie,only problem was it rained like it can only rain in Galicia,every day but the last one when in a fit of madness walked the full 40k from Bruma to Santiago,only 5 people on the way,met up with in Neda and walked with 4 of them to Bruma and with a young couple from the Czeck republic into Santiago,this time I saw the city in a different light a quite more peace full town,all the Pilgrims tucked up for the night as we walked around at midnight,one of the benefits of staying in a backpacking hostel,so know its Sunday and nothing to do but chill and try and get some things washed and dried,so as not to continue the Tom Hanks film theme,and have people think I was moving into the Airport,
So nearly the end of what has been a great walk bring on the next adventure.

So tomorrow Santiago for one maybe two nights and then home before a much looked forward visit to Berlin.
a famous English Sportsman once said after winning his 3rd gold for rowing that if he was ever seen in a boat again we should shoot him,he went on to win more golds,I feel the same about walking,but already have started to think about the coast to coast in England!!!
