Day Four Caldas de Reis


Today started with breakfast at 7.30am and the commencement of our walk at 8.30am. As always our day started with the Pilgrim’s Prayer. The day was cold but soon warmed up. Though the day was long it was not as difficult as our walk on day 2. We witnessed some amazing architecture and wonders of nature along the way. During our daily 20 minutes of silence it was a great opportunity to reflect on the experience so far. The pleasure and the pain as well as the great sense of achievement. We had many enjoyable moments with interesting conversation with each of the group members. There is always a sense of great excitement as our hotel comes into sight. As always we paused to give thanks to God for bringing us safely to our destination. A shared meal is always a fitting end to the day. It was then back to the hotel for our final reflection on our walk.
