All the pilgrims numbers for the first 9 months of 2014,1 January - 30 September



Dear Friends

This will be my last blog post for this year. Perhaps for longer. In a few days time I am off to walk the pilgrimage route of 88 temples on the Japanese Island of Shikoku. I have allowed 63 days for this pilgrimage including a few days visiting Kyoto and Tokyo.

I will not be in touch with anyone from home during this time save for emergencies. I will not be blogging. I want this to be a real period of reflection and evaluation for me. Since moving to Santiago and trying to serve pilgrims here my life has been filled with joy and good experiences. I want to take some time now to discern the best way forward.

Thank you all for visiting this blog. I have very much enjoyed writing it. I had intended this blog to be a source of Camino stories. Rather life has become so busy I now rarely write anything else but statistics! This one of the things I will be reviewing.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and may 2015 bring you much peace and happiness.

John
