"If one day someone asked meYou would do it again?,I would answer that YES and just to repeat the departure, with great participation of the public, touching heat received by the people around us and a great experience of being encouraged by people of all ages and of different nationalities, local associations, lacemakers, our families, the institution , spontaneous, friends and my beautiful, who gave me the right cycling shoes for sports adventure. It was 4 pm when we left the monument of Le merlettaie behind our shoulders and we were already heading towards Camariñas ... " - Giuseppe Ricci


 

We leave for a moment our future trip to the distant South Seas, adventure that We will start on July 17, 2012 and we reveal in the previous article, for return to Giuseppe's dream in his journey between Offida and Camariñas that has already arrived in Rome and that can be followed in//offidacamarinas.wix.com/bici

Everything is going as planned, and the departure took place on time on Saturday 16. About 3 hours and 15 minutes pedaling served to perform the first 62km, making the first technical checks that everything is going well. That first day they arrived at 19.40 at beautiful village of Trisungo where they quickly got a place to spend the night and have shelter, and thus continue the same Sunday towards the Marche Region.


 

Right now Giuseppe is already on the Ferry that will allow him to reach Barcelona from Rome, and from where still 1,500 km across Spain separate him from the goal, Camariñas, a city twinned with Offida and that will receive the invitation to the lace party that will be held in 2013 from the adventurer himself.

He passing through Rome nobody can leave you indifferent and an Italian heart like Giu's doesn't either. Finding accommodation there has not been a problem either, especially with the multitude of options that exist in the Etern Cityto. Already in our visit to Rome in 2008We, ourselves, would opt for one of the apartments near the mythical Piazza Navona


 

There are few media that already echo the news. Without going any further, the newspaper with the largest circulation in the Galician community, La Voz de Galicia, refers to this exciting experience in his article last June 19when Giuseppe was crossing the Apennines


Miriam, from Offida, told us yesterday that he senses emotion and enthusiasm in fulfilling this dream of Giu when he talks to him, the last time before embarking to embark on the small sea voyage. Miriam will move to Galicia in mid-July, since this "little great madness" (as defined) will not only target Camariñas, but will attend the Beginning of another great trip from July 14, that of the two keys, Paula and Isaac. !! I encourage Giu!
