129 day since I left my home was Sunday. I was still in Santiago. I slept well in Aquarius, although two pilgrims next to me, had some dirty clothes so the smell was disturbing.
It was saturday, 128 day since I crossed the threshold of my home and started my journey. I ride from Fisterra to Santiago by bus. Screen of my cellphone ultimately went dead. It was all wet, during events between Negreira and Olveiroa. So… there are no pictures.
My Pilgrimage ended in Santiago. Actually it ended two times, first time in Santiago, second in Fisterra. But I stayed there one more day. I found accommodation in Hungarian albergue, where I met two Americans, Bill and Jossie. In the evening I went to the beach and sat there for a very, very long time…
Where the pilgrimage ends? Where and when? Probably, when no more steps can be made. Because there’s no more land, because it’s Finis Terrae. I know people walking further, making circles. I don’t get it. This last day of walking was very hard for me, although still beautiful. My body started to send some alarming signals after four months of walking, tried to say – it is enough. I reach Fisterra early. Got a bed in albergue. On the street… yep, I met Staszek, whom i met the first time in Almuna. These meetings on Camino – miracles. We bought beer and iceream, and walked to the beach, to watch sunset. Staszek had a good reflex camera, me just my broken cellphone. I just watched. I could sit like that, forever… I’m not exactly sure – why. Then coming back, farewell, albergue. Most pilgrim went outside. I had flight home three days later. I decided to stay in Fisterra.
Muxia, 125 day, 33 km from Olveira. I reached Muxia extremely tired. Especially, after the day before. But I made it. Weather changed from hour to hour. Mostly wind and rain. I went to the charming church by the sea. Then returned to albergue. Talked to some people from Holland. Finally got rest, before my last day of walking.
First six days of my pilgrimage in English
Third day of my pilgrimage from Poland to Santiago. I’ve walked from Janowiec to Zwolen. Unfortunately I almost didn’t make pictures. I was very scared if I find a place to sleep, because the day before I almost end up nowhere. But this time wonderful priest allowed me to stay on the floor in parish. So I was very grateful. There are only 3 pictures. A mess in my room in the morning, before I started to walk. Me and the road sign of Janowiec and the map of that day.
A man who red my book about my 130 days pilgrimage, asked me “What about pictures? I would like to see what you’ve seen”. So I decided to share these photos in “day by day” form, since I started from my home in Lublin, till I got to Santiago and Finisterra. There will be pictures from Poland, Germany, France and Spain. Just as I have walked.
So today is the day one (001) from my hometown Lublin, to next – Nałęczów. It was about 30km long and I spent the night in a little convent. There are some pictures and a map of the journey that day.
I share those pictures through filckr, I hope that it will work. Buen Camino.
