The highlight of every day for me on this pilgrimage comes from stepping into a hot shower immediately upon arriving at my lodgings. 

I find a surprising amount of pleasure in what comes next - hand washing most of the clothes which  I wore that day. If I'm lucky, they'll even be dry by morning. 

Today, like most days, involved several very steep ups, and several very steep downs; usually through woods and fields, anything to avoid paved roads. I find the challenge of pushing myself and the serenity found by being away from civilization to be immensely rewarding. Now I know that all I'm really doing is walking from here to there, but for me it is a richly wonderful experience.
