I'm in the same boat. I was hoping that I could make it to Porto in early May, but as of now that does not look realistic. On the up side (if there is one) the situation offers some extra time to get in shape (boy, do I need it!), enjoy the local trails, and consider a new plan for fall of this year or spring of next. With vacation time building up, it also allows me to consider a longer camino, perhaps from Lisbon, and a side trip through Fatima.

cycled from Pamplona Sep 2015;Frances, walked from St Jean May/June 2017. Plans to walk Porto 2020
Hola @SarahPriestman I was all set to walk from Porto in May last year (2020) now like you it is on the horizon for May/June 2022. We (my brother and I) are aiming to walk the coastal route (at least for the first 4 or 5 days) Should have my COVID19 vaccination by the end of March or early April.

Hello All - I am postponing my Porto Camino until 2022, as the news just sounds so terrible. Anyone else have any thoughts on Portugal?
Buen Camino,
Sarah
Sadly, I’ve written off any hope for any Way of the Camino in 2021 -and this was after cancelling for 2020. This was supposed to be a memorial walk for my dear wife whom I lost at the beginning of last year.
Good luck Sarah, and just for right now plan and dream for when it will be safe to go.

Sarah - I too had plans of walking the Coastal Camino in May 2021 - I have just rescheduled to August 2021. Here's hoping the extra 3 months makes a difference (or not). Jungleboy's (aka Nick) posts are a good place to start for updates in Portugal.

Buen Camino,

Planning Porto central 2023, more chance of vaccine taking control and avoid 2022 being holy year extension. Me thinks the Porto will be very busy as alternative to a manic Frances.

Who knows what the situation will be like. Portugal is suffering the worst at yhe moment. Everyone thought spring this year (2021) would be fine for camino-ing. And it really won't. Theres also the worry with different variants. Let's just hope it wont be too long.

Coastal Camino Portugues (2019)
From here in Melbourne, Australia, Europe seems very dismal at the moment. Emirates flights are even cancelled on the east coast here. Our March 2020 CP was cancelled, but we do hope to get back to Portugal & Spain in 2022 or 2023. By then, we should have been vaccinated and the covid situation will hopefully, (we pray), have settled down. Fingers crossed!
