Fun Camino alternative

I have walked the Camino Francis 7 times, twice in 2017 and 2018. (2019)
I love planning. Using the walking for fun website my husband and I have accumulated 61.8 miles in the past week. We are walking the virtual Camino Francis and do enough miles each day to get to a town with a private room (for social distancing) We planned an extra day in Pamplona pretending we were with our friend Carmen. And that night I recreated the menu at the local cheese and wine bar.
I have especially enjoyed researching new places to stay. With the luxury of shorter days we are visiting many new villages for overnight stays. To make the trip more real I figure the milage goal we need each day and have only had to sleep under a tree one night. We are also eating our favorite pilgrim meals and making our own lunches.
And as a Camino addict I am also wearing the same limited number of clothes I take on the camino. Here is the website and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Hi Easygoing, I have been walking the virtual Camino too as I busy myself in the garden and with short Walks. I was planning to start my first ‘actual ‘ Camino in four weeks time so am pleased to be looking at the images of what I should have been seeing. At the moment I an just past Hostanas, having completed 321 km.

It is fun, an you don't even need the fancy app. I've been revisiting the Invierno, with the help of an Excel spreadsheet I'm making as I go. Every day I walk and get a bit closer to Santiago, measuring distances on my Osmand map. I find I'm walking much more than normal, and many days in the last two weeks I've been making about a half-day's progress on a 'normal' camino.

Thanks Camino Sharon for sharing the site. Just joined and will have to dig out my Fitbit again. Wish we had more trails to access around here. I pound the pavement with rather unforgiving shoulders.
