When I was contacted to do a wedding in Galicia, specifically in Santiago (a city I really wanted to visit and that I’d finally get to see), I had two things clear. The first – that I was going to eat copious amounts of pulpo (octopus) and the second that I was going to meet Alberto and Yago.
Santiago is a special city with a medieval feel to it. It’s streets invite you to walk along them. It’s a city filled with dreams and promises made by the pilgrims who pass through, sore from so much walking, but whose shouts of joy upon arriving in the Plaza of Obradoiro show that it was without a doubt an unforgettable experience that was absolutely worth it.
Some will have done the pilgrimage for their beliefs, others to fulfill promises, some simply because they decided they wanted to do it. It’s kind of like life – you set goals and try to go, go, go, without stopping until you achieve those goals. The key is that when you think you’ve achieved all of your goals, you have to set more for yourself or you’ll die without anything else.
Find what you love to do and do it. It might not be easy, but you’ve got to believe in the magic of new beginnings.
