When I Was Twenty I Stood At The Edge Of The World!

It seemed it! I had decided to accompany two girlfriends from university who were going on pilgrimage, the camino de santiago de compostela!

Most pilgrims walk the great distance. I think it was about eight hundred kilometres, it might have been five hundred. We covered some on foot, but ultimately we cheated, since we didn't have three weeks to do it. We got on a coach that took us along the way some distance, and hitchhiked too.

When I later told my parents they were shocked! But we did look out towards the Americas from a point to the west of the cathedral city, across the Atlantic which touched the shores beneath our feet.
