Most Memorable Travel Experience

a journey in the most north-westernmost region of an old land. into the wild, into the unknown. into one of the most spiritual region in the face of the earth were all men of soul searching journey went, the likes of san yago and san andrés, to where the pilgrims offered their homage to their religious passion. where an ancient country is separated from the country itself. where the language is not the language but an old and ancient language, a celtic language, a land of the druids, land of the celts... the ends of the earth, la finisterra.

un lugar donde alguna vez estuve en mi pasado, en donde los cuatro vientos de la tierra envolvieron en círculos sus fríos brazos en mi frágil cuerpo; con ello, hallé el amor en soledad.

pero estos sentimientos se tornaron insignificantes, porque al mirar hacia atrás, sorprendentemente me trajo de vuelta hacia los brazos y el amor de la persona que me dio la vida, mi madre.

españa, un país, la tierra… donde no tuve expectativas. un amorío que tan solo ella y yo podríamos entender. de todos mis viajes, ya sea en el pasado, presente o en el futuro próximo.. nunca podría olvidar esta tierra que me tuvo entre sus brazos... nunca.

españa.. una vez en mi vida.. tú eres la única.

es necesario correr riesgos. sólo entendemos del todo el milagro de la vida cuando dejamos que suceda lo inesperado.

"we have to take risks. we will only understand the miracle of life when we allow the unexpected to happen."

girando como una noria... spinning like a wheel... girando como una noria... spinning like a wheel...

contigo, with you.

grains of sand is all we are.

"a grain of sand is a moment of creation, and the universe has taken million of years to create it."

Ouch! It poured on us Friday but I was snug as a bug in my tent. Luckily my friend had picked up a tarp for hers as she would have been soaked.

NickelP says: worries. I just got back late last night from camping/hiking up island and no cell service anyways. Will hopefully get a blog up on it one of these day as I have some great photos. Now to clean my gear up just so I can repack it to take off Thursday after work.

Yep, I do!

Have a great camping trip! I look forward to hearing about it when you get back.
