”I am walking the virtual Camino because it has always been on my bucket list to do for"real". Since COVID began I have been on a journey of getting to know myself more and what better way by walking the Camino! I love the Cafe too to be able to connect with other fellow pilgrims. Such a wonderful idea this is. I hope to do it for real someday.Christina M.Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada
”I love entering the miles at the end of the day and then looking at the corresponding locations along the actual Camino. Listening to the Pilgrim stories is also very inspirational. I would now love to do this in person one day. All eight of us participating are loving this.Neal MayerNew York, USA
”This virtual Camino, for me, has been a bridge to the one I left in 2013. It has brought the Camino home in many ways. I have been contemplating a lot as I walk, brainstorming, and figuring things out here at home while I walk virtually also in Spain. I am starting to see home a little differently now. It feels good.
I am virtually near Logroño now as I balance work and life while walking here at home in Oliver. This has been a blessing and we’re just beginning! How exciting! So, take your time, contemplate life, and enjoy the journey.
My deep-felt appreciation goes out to the five hikers who made their vision a reality and shared it with all of us. Thank you!Tania V.British Columbia, Canada
”Just started my virtual hike from St. Jean Pied de Port. So beautiful looking at the Pyrenees mountains. Pushed myself and stopped for the day at Roncesvalles. Amazing pictures, feels like I am there.Gary B.Los Angeles, USA
”Not only did [the Virtual Camino] provide a focus for my runs, it allowed me to feel like my solitary runs were actual helping someone else in a small way.Jack A.Tennesee, USA
”I have loved being part of Camino for Good Virtual Walk. I'm eager to get out and walk every day, a minimum of 3 miles per day, then come inside and review the photos and stories along the Camino. I also enjoy the weekly meditation. It's been a great experience so far. Now, we just need the pandemic to subside - I'd love to walk the real Camino some day.Liz. G
”I enjoy listening to the stories in the app. When I get to a destination, I can hear other’s real life journey. A few of the stories have been about how pilgrims experienced radical hospitality on their Camino walk. So refreshing.Denise D.North Carolina, USA
”I signed on mainly because I thought it was for a good cause. I am not keen on gimicky things like this app. But I played along, figuring I might as well since I've got it. And I love it. It's nice to re-connect with these places, and the app's mapping and photos, etc. is great. A friend who lives about 30 miles away, I discovered, is also doing it. She's much further along than I am, but, I might catch up to her. Who knows. And other Camino friends on Facebook are kind of following my journey. And, maybe they'll join the virtual journey too. (It's not really virtual, since we are really walking somewhere!)Tom L.
”The virtual experience was very rich! The web-site easy to navigate and full of wonderful content. My favorite was the Camino audio stories from pilgrims who have experienced the Camino in person. They shared personal stories via audio files, and it gave me a real sense of how diverse the Camino experience is – people from across the globe!Betty S.Tennesee, USA
”The Virtual Camino has motivated me to travel farther and with more purpose on my runs and hikes. I look forward to progressing on my journey while learning about the towns along the Camino!Ian C.Delaware, USA
”My goal was to walk five days a week, 2-3 miles each day. I was able to do that and am so thankful for the Virtual Camino for Good for being there for me as well as the friends that walked beside me. As I near the very end, I would encourage anyone thinking about this to give it a try. You never know what life has in store for you around the corner.Sylvia C.Florida, USA
”[The Virtual Camino] has kept me motivated to walk every day and to keep moving. It has inspired me to plan on doing this in person in a couple years. I am a very spiritual person and doing a pilgrimage is something I am being called to do in my life. It has been a wonderful journey and seeing all the places that I can one day visit. I have enjoyed being out in nature and connecting to Spirit... It has brought me much introspection and gratitude. I love all the pictures too!Denise ThomasColorado, USA
