The end of the journey. It feels crazy that I don’t have to get up at 5 tomorrow. I feel so lucky that I could have done this.
I wanted to sleep in because it’s not so far for me anymore. But around 5 I heard everyone doing some stuff and when I looked everyone was already gone, haha. So I got up and went walking as well.
My first stop was to drink coffee. There I saw on Instagram that there was this big line in front of the Pilgrims Office. So I contacted Yuri and Shy. The took a ticket for me as well, because when they arrived yesterday they couldn’t even get their certificate anymore.
When I arrived in Santiago, someone told me: look up, there it is already. I walked to the cathedral and I started to film and then I started to cry… I went looking for my friends and found them. This feeling is with no words to describe. I never thought my body would adjust so easily. My backpack wasn’t even heavy anymore.
We had some drinks and some foods and then there was my surprise: Youri came. We had an appartment out of town. It was only 18 euro, but we had almost a whole small house for ourselves. We loved it. And it felt good to see each other again.
