Like so many others I, with a heavy heart, cancelled my flight for April 6 a few days ago, though I had resigned myself earlier to ending my " kid free" Camino time. For a week now our family has been in isolation, as is required of every one. Our only outings are our daily walks which we have found increasing in length and time, especially on the days above zero. And so I have decided to walk my Camino. I will track our daily hikes, and mark it on my route. I will take a picture to add to my "travel" log. I will come home and make a cafe leche to warm up. Perhaps I will reach Santiago by the time the isolation order end.Any others interested in walking with me? I'll keep you updated on my progress.

2015-2019 walked all or more than half of CF 7 times... CP recently cancelled by Covid 19!
I think thiis is a great idea and others have mentioned this concept before. I am going to start doing this as well. however, I ill skip rain/snow days! When others are not even allowed to take a stroll in a park, we are still fortunate to have the opportunity to move about as long as we maintain distance!

Great idea. I've been walking 5-10 miles a day just to work out agitation and stress. 🤪 I think I'll check Gronze or one of the other guides and start tracking where I am along the Francés. Good memories! It will be a slow Camino, but my time on the Camino has always been slow. 😄

That's great! In 2014 I was packed and ready to leave on my first camino but was diagnosed with lymphoma so had surgery and months of chemo - so during chemo I walked - and throughout those long summer months I logged 560 miles on my "Chemo Camino". In 2015 I walked the French route, 2016 the Portuguese, 2017 the Way of St. Olav in Norway, and 2018 the Primitivo. The "Chemo Camino" was a great start to many caminos, and I'm still walking and planning the Camino dos Faros for next year. So, do your Camino wherever you are now and plan for future adventures. Keep walking!

Believe it or nor I am doing the same. Hoping to reach Santiago in 10 weeks.
Good luck to us both and of course other members who are yearning to be a part of that beautiful Camino family of walkers.

Off tipos but i feel important for you....
I was in Muxia this past December when I first learned about the Faros trek. I got a map and headed south out of Muxia for a day hike to see the coast. Was amazingly beautiful BUT I didn’t make it very far because of a nasty spines plant know as toxo. It went through my hiking pants like needles and inflamed my skin somewhat. Not saying the trip isn’t doable, but do some research about leg (this shit grows well over 6ft tall btw) protection. I took a chunk of the plant back to the Bela Muxia and tried my gators as protection and it was quite effective but that only protects to the knees. There are options to backtrack and walk roads but it’ll increase the time for stages. Buen Camino.

As solitary walks are among the few things still considered safe, I go out for a nice walk most days. The other day my walk took me along the river Main where I walked a 10 km stretch of the local "Jakobsweg". This is the marker I passed:

Thank you for the wonderful idea! I live on one of the Great Lakes in U.S. and I am able to walk daily. Today, as I walked the beach, I found myself mourning the loss of my April Camino Frances despite the fact that the sun was shining and the waves were splashing on the shore. I will walk my Camino in Michigan this spring and hope that this fall brings a world free of Covid-19 where we are able to move about freely. Perhaps this will remind all of us that we need to take better care of each other! Been Camino!

A while back, I had the idea of doing a program with the minimum security prison up the street. A slide lecture, a copy of my book and the prisoners would walk X miles per day (around the enclosed space/whatever the warden would approve.) Give a talk once a week sharing what I saw and learned on Camino. The prisoners would all get a copy of the Brierley Guide book and mark their X miles per day off on the maps. Actually going on Camino might become a constructive goal for some of the guys when they were released from prison. Maybe do up mock compostelas at the end - then I thought it was just a bit too far fetched. Never followed through with the fantasy idea.
Congrats --Great minds think alike.
Now it looks like we are all "in prison" At least our physical bodies.

Great initiative. ❤ I too have been walking more and although without my pack, I feel privileged to still be able to do at this oh so challenging time in our world.

In France our walks have gradually been reduced to a distance of max 1 km from home, carrying a “self declaration” (or some such name) marking the reason for our walk, dated and signed, together with an identity card. And the coast where I live has been closed - barriers everywhere indicating the “interdiction” after those who have a holiday home here came “fleeing” from their “résidences principales” to be in more pleasant surroundings. They behaved as if they were on holiday with groups picnicking along the coast. Result: worsened restrictions.

So one km it is. Empty roads, empty paths. However lovely quiet, beautiful sunshine and the birds are singing. With no cars about you can hear them everywhere.....

No Camino in April as scheduled with my whole family for my 80 birthday the day after tomorrow, however we will have a joint zoom session in the evening. Have to remember to put a bottle of Champagne in the fridge.....

I do hope you will do this but, please, please, allow more than one day! 😇 😇

A friend (more than 60 years-old) from my country was undertaking post-graduate study at the University of Leuven , Belgium in 2010. Just along from her accommodation she saw two things set into the pavement. One was a brass scallop shell. Above it was a stone engraved with "2400 km" (or similar) and an arrow pointing southwest. A few months later she started her camino from Saint-Jean and arrived at Compostela 28 days later.

Phil's Camino is an absolutely wonderful little movie (and Phil is a lovely, inspiring man). I highly recommend you order a copy, if you haven't seen it.

I also am loving using www.walking4fun.com. It syncs with your fitness tracker (or you can just input your daily miles/kms) and shows you how far you would have made it each day. You can choose your trail from dozens that are available, including the Frances and the Portuguese. It also shows you lovely pics of the walk for that day. I "started" in SJPdP 9 days ago and have just "arrived" in Puente La Reina! I look forward to reliving my real Camino each day.

Just leaving Pamplona!!! on www.walking4fun.com, What a great site and thanks to Sue 127 for it. When you are limited to 1.5kms from your house and about 1 to 2 hours a day ie about 5/10kms per day, should reach Santiago before end 2020, but it really gives one the incentive and "joy" of doing the same streets everyday near one's home!!!

Hi Hadji Tom,
I take no credit for the site - apart from passing in on - several others have also mentioned it. Perhaps we'll meet up 'en route' as I am nearing Puenta la Reina - should get there with today's steps. Maybe we (and others who are interested) could start a Walking with Friends group on walking4 fun. IT could be just like a real camino, sometimes on the same day, others moving ahead one day and falling back another. I love the fact that there are photos for each section of the walk - I know it won't detract from the real thing!

A while back, I had the idea of doing a program with the minimum security prison up the street. A slide lecture, a copy of my book and the prisoners would walk X miles per day (around the enclosed space/whatever the warden would approve.) Give a talk once a week sharing what I saw and learned on Camino. The prisoners would all get a copy of the Brierley Guide book and mark their X miles per day off on the maps. Actually going on Camino might become a constructive goal for some of the guys when they were released from prison. Maybe do up mock compostelas at the end - then I thought it was just a bit too far fetched. Never followed through with the fantasy idea.

This would be amazing for those incarcerated. My nephew who is in that situation would love it! Of course they’re all on lock down as we are and no visitors are allowed but perhaps when they are allowed back in you may seriously consider it. They desperately need something to get them out of their head and also gives them hope for the future to maybe one day really do a camino. I totally encourage you!!

Camino Le Puy to SJPP(or however far I get) (2020)
Thank you all for inspiration, so typical of peregrinos . I was due to fly out of Sydney, Australia, on 1st April to meet up in Germany with 3 fantastic people I met on my first Camino in Sept-Oct 2017. I was then to make my way to SJJP to walk the Camino again, but in the Spring this time. Not to be 😭. However, I'm blessed to be isolated in a beautiful place away from home for another week here. Every step anywhere I try to transform into the Camino. It was easy as I walked through some vineyards yesterday....... until I saw kangaroos!! 😃
Will try recording my distances & may check out that walking4fun website. Love the beautiful surprises life always offers! Keep sharing!

Thanks all for the good ideas, inspiration and humour. I'll pass on the snore track for now :)
My progress has been very slow this week. In the past week our walking area had been reduced to our local neighborhoods. Combine that with continuing to work full time+ from home with a couple of teens in the house and, well, umm you get the idea. Maybe I'll set a new record for slowest walk? On the bright side my spouse can join me on this walk and my shoes won't wear out so fast :)

What a fantastic idea. I walk between 10 and 15 kilometres every day, rain or shine. I am also a bit of an eccentric and keep a record of the distance I walk every day. I was intending to walk the Portuguese starting in June. What I am going to do is get the guidebook out and starting from Lisbon I will choose a town to walk to every day and walk that distance. I will keep my progress marked on a big map I have. I will look up the towns on Google Earth and do a virtual tour of each one. When I get to do the actual Camino I hope it will seem familiar to me. I am able to walk every day as I live on the edge of a small town in New Zealand with country roads all around and am able to walk in isolation (which is how I like it). I am now off to walk to Sacavem and I will be home for dinner.

Planning to do French pilgrimage route from Le Puy April 2020
That's great! In 2014 I was packed and ready to leave on my first camino but was diagnosed with lymphoma so had surgery and months of chemo - so during chemo I walked - and throughout those long summer months I logged 560 miles on my "Chemo Camino". In 2015 I walked the French route, 2016 the Portuguese, 2017 the Way of St. Olav in Norway, and 2018 the Primitivo. The "Chemo Camino" was a great start to many caminos, and I'm still walking and planning the Camino dos Faros for next year. So, do your Camino wherever you are now and plan for future adventures. Keep walking!
This is so encouraging, thank you. I'm glad you got to walk after your unscheduled interruption in 2014.
On a lesser scale, my husband and I both gave up our jobs so we could spend 3 months walking the camino from France and are now reacting to the likelihood of several months with neither employment nor camino adventure. Although our outer journey has been paused, the inner journey is underway.

Frustration is affecting many of us, but we must let Spain recover. I’d moved my Camino from October to May/June as I’d got so excited with the planning. It can easily go back to October, but I fear it may be longer. I’ll continue to plod along with www.walking4fun in anticipation of the real thing. I hope you get to walk yours soon.

Trying to grasp that 2020 maybe out for me, when will travel return to normal? Hope I am very wrong for all the pelegrinos and the people whose livelihood depends on the Camino. So thanks the virtual camino in quarantine - the perfect alternative for a 🐢!

Thanks to those of you who directed me to www.walking4fun! I would have begun my Camino in St. Jean Pied de Port March, 27; instead I have been walking in Michigan. I was able to log my miles using my FitBit information and was excited to see that I would have walked to LosArcos by now. The pictures are wonderful and keep me focused on life after the coronavirus.
