Thursday in Santiago

The finality of my pilgrimage begins to hit as I check into my hotel room and slip the key card into to door, click... the door closing on my journey. And yet, I feel it doesn´t have to be the end, but only the beginning. The beginning of stepping out of the box (more often), taking a leap of faith, doing something out of the ordinary. When one door closes, another opens.

Many people, once they reach Santiago, go on to Finisterre. In medieval times, it was considered the end of the world. Written on a rock, at Finisterre, you will find these words; ¨I will go beyond what dreams can reveal´.¨ Imagine, going even beyond your dreams!

I hope you have had a glimpse of what I have seen and experienced. Thank you for following along, looking forward to seeing you all.

btw, one advantage of all this weight bearing exercise is that I have probably put off any signs of osteoporosis for at least another 20 years!

See you soon...


  1. Dear Cherry,

    Congratulations! I think it is so great that you stepped out (literally) to do this. I know you must feel so healthy in so many ways.

    I look forward to seeing your photos and seeing you in the Chicago Tribune! How funny that those women found you - it was meant to be.

    Enjoy the hotel!

    Thanks so much for the memories.See you soon!

    Congratulations on finishing this part of your journey. I am sure there are more journeys from all you have learned. It has been great to read about your time in Spain.
    I look forward to hearing more and seeing all the pictures.
    We will have to do Cafe' Kopi. Also maybe a pedicure for those tired feet!

    See you soon!
