... of onlookers. It was an amazing feeling to have riden over 300km on this adventure - I never thought I would be able to ride the distances and the terrain - the hill training certainly paid off as I was able to lead on many of the hills - I was amazed with my stamina. It has certainly been an adventure and a pilgrimage of self discovery, amazing cycling, great food, meeting of extraordinary people and loads of fun. The path to the hotel was up ...

Margaret joined me at around 11am, followed by Chris, Cheryl and Sharon. Margaret and I asked the ...

... meet at dinner. After dinner, we are walking around the city. Then we decide to go bowling. A quick Internet search and we are now headed to the local mall which has a bowling alley in the basement. A few blocks of walking and we have arrived. We enter the bar that has a few lanes from the 1980's and settle in. Drinks, laughs and a few strikes later, we decide to call it a night and head back to the hotel. Pain recap; What's hurting? Nothing. We feel wonderful having finally reached ...

Finisterre was important as this is a big part of the legend, where the apostle's boat actually landed and where the remains rested for hundreds of years until transferred into the Cathedral. Michelle, Hadijah, Carmel and I spent the afternoon shopping and discovering town. In true Camino fashion we would bump into each other when it was time for coffee and accompany each other into ...
