Joop emailed me yesterday - he was planning on arriving in Santiago today. Yay! Joop you did it - 800 km, 500 mi, 6 weeks. I remember that first day in St. Jean Pied de Port when we met - you were so worried - and YOU DID IT! Congratulations!
Here's Joop's account of the Camino: http://gaviota.shareyourstory.nl/. He has some breathtaking pictures displayed.
