After 9 months of travel on a footbike, solo and unsupported, living outdoors in autonomy, me, Blandine aka “La Trottineuse”, a 33 years old French woman, have just reached the North Cape in the Arctic Norway, an unprecedented event.
Actually kicking a Europe Tour by footbike (more than 20 countries already explored), a world premiere, I have left job and apartment, as well as sold my belongings, to go on a quest for the good life, in an epic athletic challenge based on humanism and solidarity.
Camping in the wild, living on little, mostly from the generosity of people met on the road and thanks to donations of the followers of the adventure, I have set a goal in trying to spread awareness about alternative ways of living and travelling.
I’m also raising funds for a charity implementing and experimenting a cooperative restaurant and a farm-village, in Normandy, where I started the tour. My attempt at an adventure gathering solidarity-based principles, a search for personal ethics and a political impact will lead me to publish a book, and surely, to other crazy journeys, as I now consider this is my “authentic life”.
