The goal today was to reach Santiago in time for the midday pilgrim’s mass at the cathedral. I found it quite an emotional walk, I was thinking about the past month and all the people I had met and the experiences I’d had. The trail was again mainly through eucalyptus forests before opening up to reveal Mt Gozo and the monument on top of it commemorating the visit of Pope John Paul II. I walked with many camino friends that I’d met along the way, all hoping to arrive in time for the mass.
I had a wonderful feeling of euphoria arriving into Santiago and finally glimpsing the cathedral as I walked around the maze of streets to get to Plaza Obradoiro where the entrance to the cathedral was.
