Five Dutch Angels

After the 5th stage, Ana returned to Ibiza. I carried on despite being alone and the walking difficulty. It was a bit scary because there are so few people walking, in fact I only met 4 groups, all Dutch. The last one was a group of 30 something Dutch guys having breakfast in the hotel.


Being the shy person that I am, I asked if they were walking and if I might tag along. Surprisingly they said yes, so off we went. The day was grueling, long, hot, with little shade, no villages, and steep terrain. It provided a humbling experience, one I do not want to repeat.

The highlight of the day – my angels! They accepted this old lady, encouraged me, included me, and supported me for the 8 hrs of pounding we took to get to our destination.
