HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUSSIE DAVE
Benedictine Monastery of San Salvador del Monte Irago
By chance, I have learned a Benedictine monastery serves pilgrims with the only condition that being you must stay several days for a true rest from the Camino. With few pilgrims staying here, the time is less consumed by “Camino mentality” and more concentrated on unwinding. All is done for us, laundry, meals, household chores. It’s hard being in the position of being served.
I feel a peacefulness not previously sensed.
