    Band of Trudgers - Virtual Camino

    The ‘for real’ Camino Poutuguês Coastal/Senda Litoral is a great walk along the Atlantic passing through seaside towns & small beach communities. It does have a different vibe from the Central route with less emphasis on the historical aspects. Both routes have their attractions & must-sees...

    Free online course about the camino (in Spanish)

    Well, I’m really late seeing this but I have registered for the course just in time! I have done MOOC’s on other websites, mostly Coursera. Thanks, @jungleboy, it does sound interesting.

    @kirkie, no, you missed a great walk out of Porto, along the river to the Atlantic & onwards!

    Yes, just a short one but adding several days stay in Noosa to walk in the national parks there before walking back to Caloundra should make it about two weeks. I walked the Caminho Português Central in 2017, Porto to SdeC, & the Coastal/Senda Litoral in 2019, Lisbon to SdeC. Loved Portugal!

    @Lexicos, in April I’m going to walk from Caloundra to Noosa in Queensland along the coast. It’ll be reminiscent of the Caminho Português, Coastal route. It’s not long so I’ll stretch it out to 5-6 days, then walk in the Noosa National Park & visit the Everglades, before walking back to Caloundra.

    Welcome, @charlotte19675! Starting on the Camino Frances is great. Haha, fog, not what you want when you’re climbing the Pyrenees! Is there scenery in fog or does it drift away & give you tantalising glimpses?

    Pandemic Induced Popularity of Google Street View

    @mspath, hello! I’m having fun exploring caminos & trails I haven’t walked in real life. I have tried several different virtual websites but found google street view somewhat irritating & time consuming. I’ve changed to walking4fun.com now & have walked several of their trails. I definitely like...

    Fantastic, @Anamya & @kirkie, both of you on the Caminho Português! I love Portugal & the Portuguese people are so friendly & helpful. Bom Caminho! I started the Chemin de Puy & I’m close to halfway, but some friends started the Florida Keys Trail so I switched over to that. I should finish...

    Hola, everyone! I have finished the Arizona Trail which had some spectacular scenery, especially the Grand Canyon & the Vermillion Cliffs. I was amazed at all the flowers that flourish in the desert! I have now started walking the Chemin Le Puy which @Priscilla NC has just finished today. It's...

    Wow, henrythedog! First, welcome to virtual walking. The Camino Frances was fun. Second, that's some ambition, to tackle 15,000km for your second walk. Good for you!

    @Jeff Crawley = so well done! Completion of your Camino, even virtually, is a great achievement. You have walked every km/mi! Enjoy the Portugues Camino! Are you walking the Central or Senda Litterol/Coastal? Both are beautiful.

    @Jeff Crawley, haha, that's not bad. I'm on two websites atm, worldwalking & walking4fun. worldwalking today said I had walked 15.1km & walking4fun said 16.4km from the same stepcount. I'm happy with walking4fun! Keep on trudging. Oops, got that around the wrong way! w4f said 15.1km, ww said...

    @kirkie, I'm glad you're still trudging! Where are you vwalking now? I'm officially retired now & I'm gradually getting into a walking routine. I'm still part of a work team vwalking from London to Lapland & we're nearly finished so I'll be quitting that team then. Keep on keeping on!
