Hacer meaning to travel???

This question suggested conjugate Hacer but the tranlation said 'travel' I don't understand why we would use hacemos instead of viajamos in that context? We would never say 'we do (or make) 200 to get to work' in English and I can't find any suggestion online that hacer is used to describe travel but perhaps it is a quirky Spanish anomaly?  Thanks for your help to understand this one :)

 Hola Meilin

Yes, the use of "hacer" in this context is normal and it's idiomatic, so we use it when we express an amount of any type of distance:

Cada día hago 3 kilómetros de caminata para mantenerme en forma.

I walk (do) 3 kilometres a day to stay in good form.

Me monté en la bici e hice al menos 15 millas.

I went on the bike and did (rode for) at least 15 miles.

Saludos

Inma
