Congratulations, Michael!

Again, I digress into the personal.

It’s my blog; I’ll write what I want.

My friend Michael completed his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. This is a pilgrimage route that has been actively used since the middle ages, and he took it into his head to walk the bloody thing.

He took 31 days. Covered over 850 km.

Today, he arrived at the end and received his Compostela at the cathedral. Tomorrow at noon, he attends noon mass, which is apparently the official end of the pilgrimage.

If you like, you can read the details in his pilgrimage blog here, complete with all his trials, tribulations, and triumphs.

I am in awe of his achievement. I could never do it, and he’s older than me.

Way to go, buddy.

Look forward to welcoming you home.
