Next stop Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, North West Spain. We are flying there tomorrow afternoon from Liverpool. We will only be there for three nights - actually two of those will be at Santa Uxia on the coast. Why go? Perhaps I would have been wiser, financially, to bank this money instead of jetting off for another mini-adventure but I am sorry, for me travel is like coming up for air when you feel like you are almost drowning. Travel excites me, gives me memories, reminds me that it is great to be alive. This time I am off with Shirley and two friends who accompanied us to the Czech Republic in 2005. We have booked a hire car to take us to the coast and we intend to discover what all the fuss has been about over Santiago ( St James) - the destination of pilgrims from across Europe for centuries. Steve and I also wish to swim in the coastal hotel's swimming pool and in the Atlantic Ocean. We'll be back on Tuesday afternoon. See ya!
