Two years ago I did a three day's pilgrimage on part of the road to Nidraos with my colleagues. I have always been fond of walking, and on that pilgrimage a dream was born in me - one day, or more presicely; "when I turn 50 I want to walk the road to Santiago de Compostela!"
Time passes, and I will be 49 in April (while we are in Venice). It is time to start exercising for my pilgrimae walk.
And I did so last week. Walking home from work. Which took me 1 1/2 hour, steep upward hills the last half hour. It took most of my energy! It felt heavenly!
I walk almost daily, but never as far as this. Now this will be a weekly habit. And next summer my best foot forward will hopefully take me to Santiago de Compostella!
