I met a cool guy from Belgium who is spending the night at the youth hostel. Starting tomorrow, he is going to spend two weeks walking on le chemin de compostelle which is a transnational walking route. He plans to walk from Bayonne to a city in Spain called Santander, a 350km jaunt, or 217.48 miles according to Google. “We’re young,” he said, “so why not?” Why not I thought? It was inspiring to hear his story, and I passed along one of the lucky seashells that I received from Marie-Sabine. Good luck, cool guy from Belgium.
