Day 17 Santo Domingo de la Calzada to Belorado

**Hey! So I’ve decided to just post smaller summaries of the rest of my days on the Camino. Similar to on my Instagram. Editing the longer journal entries take so long & I am limited on time! I do plan on compiling the longer edited daily journals in a book.

Today was a very exhausting day because the last hour of my walk was very difficult. As some know sometimes the barriers aren’t physical but mental in nature. My back/feet were not in pain but the monotonous nature of the walk towards the end was challenging.

Overall, emotionally I felt super calm and at ease even when I was lost or a tad bored. The walking had a muted feel to it and my energy low. The weather had a part in this because it was so cloudy. Sometimes when walking in the bright heat and sun, it can be very energizing and very radiating. I don’t know if that makes sense. It’s like my eyes are overwhelmed by the sun. I find with the past few cloudy days, the walk had a chill vibe to it. Like a walk on a lazy Sunday.
