How far is the proxima centauri to earth by walking?
The distance between two points is the distance between them. It doesn't depend on the method an object uses to move between the two points. It also doesn't depend on what route an object follows between them, or even whether or not anything moves between the two points. The distance between the earth and the Orion Nebula is the distance, even though no object has ever moved between the earth and the Orion Nebula.
