Day 20 Calzadilla de La Cueza to Sahagún, Spain, October 11, 2022
Despite the size of the room, everyone was super quiet except Mirjanne who snores. Ha ha! I had a very good sleep and we were out of the hostel by 7:30, heading to a local restaurant for breakfast.
Today’s route was 22km and it was nice to have a village to stop in every few kilometres –
My intention for the day was asking what my purpose is. Many people are walking the Camino for that very reason. Should they change jobs? What should they do with their lives? Me, I think I’ve had a pretty good life. I had a great career and I raised two awesome kids but now as I am 60, where does it go from here? It came to me that my purpose at this point in my life is to look after my family and to me that means helping Jane and Mitch as much as I can and being a support to my mom and dad. And so, that goes back to my idea about from now on my trips will be much shorter. I FaceTime my mom and dad just about every day just to make sure they are doing OK. When I am at home I try to spend at least one day/week with Jane and her family. I think I’m on the right track.
I was on the road by 8 o’clock and of course it was dark so naturally I went the wrong way. It cost me about a kilometre which is so frustrating.
How far I’ve walked-

More of the same but that is soon to end after Leon. This tractor is ready to hit the field –
