I am fancying a virtual walk. some favourite days from the past.

Many years ago, 10 or 20, I am not sure, there used to be a site on the net that had a day by day guide for quite a few camino journeys. You would click on a day and it would be a sequence of photographs from that day. Lots of flowers, paths, churches, maybe thirty pictures a day. Always finishing with a photo of the target alberque.

Where has it gone?

Good question. I recall using a site like that to research my first camino in 2010. There is http://santiago-compostela.net/ that does something similar, but i am not sure it is the same one or new.

I also used this site 10 years ago. Think it was the english site Confrenity of st James...please excuse spelling.

@Finisterre, it appears the ownership of this site changed hands in 2015, and it was rebuild around 2016. The original site dates back to 2002, which would be be consistent with your recollection that a site existed about 20 years ago.

Fantastic, that is the one, the same photos. I think they must have changed the layout.
I'm feeling quite emotional after browsing this.
(probably due to civilisational stress.)
A godsend.

Thank you.

If you have a reasonable idea of the site address you can try to view the archived content via one of the internet archives. Eg the wayback machine. Ive viewed old content from the late 90s that way.
