32km from Muxía to Finisterre, approximately 6290km in total. I’ll add up my daily distances once I’m settled at home and see what total that comes to.
05/11/2022 – 32km
Although I knew it was my last day, it felt the same as any other as I made my way down along the coast. Although I did have a good cry listening to The Breaking of the Fellowship from the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.
There was a surprise when I reached Finisterre. I knew my dad and his partner were going to try and meet me, but my mum was also there, which I really didn’t expect. Despite the crowds I did feel quite emotional.
So there we go. It’s over. 196 days after walking away from the Black Sea coast I’ve run out of land. 6290km, approximately 8.5 million steps (according to my phone).
There are too many people to thank that I can’t name them all. Thanks to Dylan for putting all of his information online, meaning I had almost no planning to do. Thanks to all the great people I met along the way, and those who came out to meet me. Thanks to everyone who’s been following along, leaving comments and sending me messages. Thanks to my girlfriend, for being very understanding and patient.
Now the next thing is to relax and celebrate, which might be a challenge (it doesn’t come naturally to me).
On to a new chapter.
