Finisterre, the Lunar Eclipse

Twice over the Alps before ever I was born, my name is Hannah but when online I tend to go by Lunaed, or Eluned Francis. I like to live in the past or in other peoples' present. I live to travel and love to see the world from the perspective of others. I chew slowly, and absorb the world in much the same way: savouring it.

Finisterre, Lunar Eclipse



With no solid leaving date in mind, the days I spent languishing in Finisterre were something of a disconnect from the main body of the rest of the trip. It wasn’t quite a holiday. Despite the fact that I was trying to recover from the exertion of the walk, my body found it difficult adjusting to suddenly staying still. I did love this place, which Europeans considered the end of the world until as recently as the __, but it was bittersweet. Finisterre signalled the end point for almost all of the pilgrims with whom I had been walking. Even Marco, who had intended to continue on to Lisbon by foot as well, was reconsidering and I knew I’d soon recognise nobody.

On a walk such as this, I never expected to keep bumping into the same people time after time. Soon I depended upon seeing the same faces, and felt surprisingly reluctant to set out again and go against the grain.
