I arrived home Sunday night and have slowly been getting back into the groove of “the real world.” The jet lag was not as bad as I had anticipated. Monday night I crashed and burned and slept for 10 hours straight, followed by an hour nap the next morning.
My travel home is an adventure in and of itself. The overview is a bus, three airport shuttles, two taxis, 6 different airplanes, 7 airports and a road trip covering 700 miles. All this over the course of 4 days. Throw in a little jet lag just for good measure.
Santiago to Finisterre
The walk between Santiago and Finisterre covered 89km traveling through forests. Very little of the walk was through natural forests. The majority of their forests in this area are managed wood lands used for timber. You can clearly see the varying maturity of the different sections.
The following is a step by step guide on how to get ditched by your friends in Spain:
As of yesterday morning, I am on my way to Finisterre. An additional 50 miles, upon completion, I will be able to say I walked across an entire country.
I didn’t set out to do a 42 mile day. I had toyed with doing another big mileage day to complete my trek into Santiago, but had not planned to go all out like I did.
