Five years ago a former flat mate of mine, Aitor, showed me some pictures of this amazing place and those images stayed with me, as well as the will to someday see it in person. 

Two mondays ago was the day! After a 9 kms walk from Bermeo (a small town near Bilbao, where I was spending the weekend) I arrived there. Safe and sound and happy to have health, wealth, freedom and strength to accomplish all the goals I set to myself! Very soon I'll start the Santiago Path and, hopefully, feel the same way at every step I take. 

To come back from Gaztelugatxe to Bermeo I certainly didn't feel so inspired! That's why, when the lady in the restaurant where I had some pintxos and some coke that prevented me from fainting after the climbing from the hermitage back to the civilization, told me that every two hours there's a taxi-bus from Bakio to Bermeo that costs almost nothing and makes the route that took me almost two hours to make in only 10 minutes and... that the taxi-bus was about to arrive (in winter it passes the hermitage only at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 7pm) I was more than happy to take the lift. 

In the Santiago Path there won't be such lifts but, hopefully, neither such gradients!
