After an easy mornings walk, only 24km, I was walking around Tarragona, sightseeing and wasting time. I had booked a room in a hostel and the reception didn’t open until 5pm.
It was sunny, reasonably warm and it was interesting walking down the main street. Rambla Nova. Had no idea where I was going, just mindlessly playing tourist.
Slowly I approached the end of the road. It ended at the top of a cliff with a view of the port, the beach and the sea. The Mediterranean Sea. That’s when it hit me. Here I was, standing at the edge of the Mediterranean and I had walked here from Stockholm, covering 5000km.
I hadn’t been thinking about this as a special waypoint on my journey, but I felt good, really good 🙂
Maybe because I hadn’t been thinking about it as anything special before, it hit me harder, surprising me. Whatever the reason, it is something that I will remember. A feeling worth remembering.
Hopefully there will be much, much more to come, 5000km is only the beginning.
