starting arrow at the cathedral

We are following signs. Arrows like the one in the picture above. They will always be painted yellow. Alison, one of the seasoned walkers, told me it’s even a particular shade of yellow. Yellow all the way to Santago de Compestello in Spain where the walk eventually ends.

There are also blue arrows. The blue arrows point the way to Fatima. A different journey, a different ending.   

Before the arrows were pointed out to me I hadn’t noticed them and now I can’t seem to stop noticing them. They are very comforting. They seem to say yes, yes you’re on the right track, keep going!


17km bridge
We walked from the starting point at the cathedral in Lisbon. It was hot. I was tired but each time I saw a yellow arrow I was comforted all over again.

You’re on the right track, keep going, Mairead.
