    So, my daughter is going to Barcelona for a work trip next week, and she has made up two big sheets with little square pictures of many of Barcelona's sites, one for each child. She will send back pictures every day and they will have to find the pictures on their sheets. They will both get bingo by the end of her trip and she will be bringing back their "prizes" from Barcelona.

    And that got me thinking.... this would be a great thing to do with young 'uns left behind when a parent or grandparent is walking the Camino. It's so easy to get Camino pictures, and this could be a lot of fun!

    Wow! I love this idea! Thank you.
    (Sort of) along these lines....I found a National Geographic Adventure Map of Northern Spain that I plan to leave with my grandson. I am going to ask him to (with his dad's help) mark my progress every day. The cool thing about the map is that the Camino Francés marked in green so it is easy to follow. The Camino del Norte and the Primitivo are also on the map.
    I am sure there are many electronic versions that would accomplish the same thing, but IMO there is nothing like a good old fashion paper map.
    Saludos.

    As far as games go, I would love to see a Camino version of Monopoly.

    Brilliant idea!
    and instead of buying houses on each square you can buy Albergues....and once you have 5 Albergues you exchange them for a Parador Hotel.......:cool:
