Leavin’ on a Jet Plane…

“There is no mile as long the final one that leads back home.”–Katherine Marsh, Jepp, Who Defied the Stars

Madrid. Thirty minutes to boarding. Fifteen hours to home.

I’m told my dog Buddy has been missing me.

What do you think?

Can’t wait to see him come running up to me!

Hope someone else does the same…cause I know I sure will!

  1. Que alegría leer tus palabras en español!.
    Termine en Logroño no tenia mas dias libres .
    Salí de Roncesvalles así que caminé unos 140 kilómetros.
    Al año que viene sigo el camino.
    Yo sabía que tu llegabas a Santiago. Valiente!!!
    Un fuerte abrazo


  2. Buen regreso a casa Joe.
    Se hecha en falta tu diario escribir y su lectura.
    Un fuerte abrazo de corazón de “la Ascensión de Hispania!”; como leí en tu blog que me describiste.


    • Gracias por sus palabras amables. Fue muy agradable conocerte. Me gusta mucho su pais hermoso. ¿Caminaste a Santiago? Espero que nuestros caminos se cruzarán en el futuro. Mi nieto Henry está traduzcando este mensaje en español para mi.
      Espero que te encuentres bien.


  3. Outstanding blog! I’ve done four Caminos and your blog captures everything perfectly, especially from the perspective of another on the “south side of 50 years” as am I. Well done. I am sure your followers would like to hear from you after you have been home for a month or so to update all of us on how you are coping with the post-Camino “blues.” I am told it is not unlike postpartum depression a mother experiences after childbirth. For what it is worth, I get it every time I leave Santiago. Thank you for sharing.

      • Joe it’s really been a pleasure reading your posts and blog. It’s made me think a lot about my own Camino adventures so I’m giving some considered thought to posting my own blog . I will send you on a link if I complete it.
        I hope you have secreted some contraband chorizo in your backpack for Buddy !!!
        By the way I’m from Dublin (Ireland).
        Travel safe 👍
