a birthday abroad

While in Spain I turned 50. I was born in Germany at 11:11 am, which shares the same time zone as Spain. At exactly 11:11 on my 50th birthday, I happen to be under this sign while walking along the Camino.

The entire day was perfect. There was a surprise party with signs, cards, balloons, a lemonade stand, a Bloody Mary estacion, a burrito bar, party hats and pins, and a compilation cake. There were a bunch of new friends, as well as other pilgrims ready to celebrate. It was a magical day.
