Rule number one following any kind of travel or adventure… have a plan for afterwards. It’s not essential but it helps to prevent that floating in space feeling, especially when your tent is your home and the door to your home is broken… again.
Welcome back real world, where travel is by car, bus, plane or train, where schedules are determined by timetables, not hunger or weather, where people ask ‘what’s next?’ rather than ‘where are you heading?’ I haven’t had to transition with the immediacy of arriving back at home, the biggest change for me is there aren’t anymore yellow arrows telling me where to go. For the first time in 40 days I need to decide my own direction. North, South, East or West? Work or play? All I know is my time on the Camino is complete, I have reached the end, and it’s time for a new direction.
