a safe and familiar place
for this tired pilgrim.
Memories of this day a year ago come flooding back. There's the mountain peak in the distance, the café in Navarette, the town of Ventosa and the albergue San Saturnino, Calle Major, 33 which today was my destination. Here, I was reunited with Jutta and Enrique, the manager and owner of the albergue, who I met last year after my first solo day of walking. This place was a safe spot, welcoming and peaceful. Familiar faces were comforting and conversation flowed. When the morning came, I walked away, smiling yet tearful, Goodbyes are not easy for me...I'm not looking back.
