I am walking in March and April of 2019.
I had a ticket to Spain for this coming January to do my yearly winter camino. I've cancelled it due to Covid. Backpack remains fully packed and ready though, teasing me. I've decided to do a really long walk when we are safe again, maybe walk for half a year or so. I am looking for recommendations for long walks through Europe. Anyone walked from Santiago to Jerusalem? How long does that take? Or how about Fatima to Poland? Anything sounds good to me. Tell me some good ideas please!!!

Frances (2013-2015) Portugues (2017-2019) Via Francigena (2018-??) Camino from Ireland (2020-??)
I am more of a section walker but am planning to extend the via francigena (I have done half of it which is England to Rome) to eventually reach Jerusalem. There are several posts on this forum so worth searching for them. There is also a Facebook group of a confraternity of pilgrims to Jerusalem.
There is also a website on the Jerusalem way
Heading to Jerusalem is more complicated as you read people's experiences, and at some point will probably involve taking a flight no matter which route you take due to issues in Syria or lack of ferry routes for crossings in the Mediterranean. It would be a tough pilgrimage and guessing from your name, that like me you are female, which may raise further issues depending on route taken to Jerusalem.
Not to dissuade you from Jerusalem, but some of the European network of camino routes may be "easier" to plan. And as I am a fan of the via francigena it would be possible to do it then follow a camino route from Italy to SdeC. That is the glorious nature of the network of pilgrimage routes in Europe, it provides many options!

Camino Francis 2012, 2014, 2016. Camino Norte 2018. Many more to come in my future God willing !
Slightly off topic.........

There is an 800 mile walk here in California, walking to all of the historic Catholic Missions that seems like it would be interesting. just FYI

My plan for next year was to walk the Via Francigena from Canterbury in England to Rome. 2200 km through England, France Switzerland and Italy ending in Vatican City. This might be an alternative for you. Sadly for me I am awaiting some surgery and depending on recovery will dictate if I now go in 2021 or 2022

A recent lockdown read was "The Crossway" by Guy Stagg published 2018/19. He walked the Via Francigena from Canterbury to Rome and kept on going until he reached Jerusalem. That took him 10 month's. Before reaching Jerusalem he walked down through Syria, full marks to him but not an endeavour to be taken lightly or without serious advice I would suggest.
He did the Via in winter and reckoned he was one of the few to have ever done this in recent history, so something there to aim at.
Buen camino for whatever journey you make post lockdown.
Don.

I am glad to possibly have been of assistance to you. If you do consider walking the Via may I suggest that you also consider looking at Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome www.pilgrimstorome.org.uk This organisation provides lots of useful information and there are occasional zoom meetings where you can talk with people from all over the world who have walked or are planning to walk the Via. You can also obtain your pilgrim's credential from them.
