Day 2 - Travel Day from Madrid to Sarria

Thursday, June 6th., 2019

It’s official!  All sixteen members of our group met in Madrid and began our Camino journey today.  That said, it wasn’t too exciting because we didn’t do any walking  - we rode a bus from Madrid to Sarria (about a five hour ride).  The true pilgrimage starts tomorrow morning at 8:30AM.

Besides riding the bus, we ate some good food, drank some good wine and enjoyed each other’s fellowship.  Upon arrival in Sarria, we checked into our hotel, met with representatives from our tour company, Fresco Tours, to learn more about what we will experience on the first day of the pilgrimage and some great tips and tricks.  What now?

We head to bed after a fabulous meal - some feeling excited, some feeling anxious and above all, ready to become official pilgrims and to experience where God is leading us.

Pictures: The group shot by the bus is on the way to Sarria from Madrid. The other photos were taken in Sarria - where we start our walk tomorrow.
