If you walk to the end of the world, Finisterre, you have the chance to burn your boots as a symbol of the end of your journey. Many people say that a pilgrim’s best friend is their boots. But if my best friend made me feel like that after a long day, I would never speak to them again. Which is why on my next Camino I plan to walk all the way to the coast and burn those things! Thank God my real best friend was walking with me during my first Camino. You can see him in the background of this photo, having already changed into his sandals for the evening.
