Thanks to the current world situation this fundraiser was born as weekends are a lot freer. I cycled 3000km over 4 months spread over 10 months due to lockdowns The intention was to cycle the Wild Atlantic way with a huge emphasis on wellbeing. Taking the time to savor beautiful scenery, listen to my body and follow the current guidelines on travel advice. This is a staycation on steroids and was beyond my wildest dreams. The original camino in 2017 a few months after Anthony’s Death across northern Spain on the Route Del Norte on the camino really opened my eyes to the joys of touring. In 2017 I did not know setting out if my body would be able for the challenge or if we would complete the whole thing as I had a bad horse riding accident two months previously. The 20201 camino was going based on honouring my body and wellbeing. When my body was tired I intended to listen and mostly did. It’s an exploration of the wonderful Wild Atlantic route and wellbeing. And what a journey. Be sure and look at the videos and pictures on my social media. It was the most epic adventure of my life and a great way to celebrate and remember my Brother Anthony Foley. Currently nearly €9000 euro have been raised thanks to your help. Please like and share. If you can get up and move …..
