Thank you to all of you for all your contribution and comments. Imogen and David please contact me on our L camino facebook page when I return we could celebrate our success together face to face not just online.
Thank you for all your support and contribution. I am now in Spain in Logrono the capital of La Rioha region. This is one of my favourite wine. It would be great to have one big bottle to share with you that taste but this is what Roger Casale is trying to achieve through Green Card project, so we can have this one big bottle together in few years time with no problems after Brexit. The situAtion looks very serious, pound is on the lowest level since referendum. If we dont raise the money for the project you wont have support in place.
Thank you Sonia. Your comment its perfect in my situation. I am about 100 miles from Paris and suppost to get there on Sunday but after reading your comment i am just finishing my coffee in Amiens to continue my cycling for you and your family, friends...
Since WW2 and before people have been encouraged to move around the world, some moved because of war, others for economic reasons and some just for the hell of it and now we are told we cannot. I truly believe Brexit goes against the spirit of the Union. I believe the aim of the Union should be to bring us together and together we can solve common problems we all share. We also share a history of good times and bad, but it is our history. There is nothing wrong with nationalism it should be encouraged and our unique ways celebrated, but we also have a higher duty to ensure we live together side by side with our neighbour, working together and caring for and helping each other. Myself and my children stem from 4 different European nationalites, spanning over 4 generations one of them being British (English), we are not French but we live in France and we try to abide by their rules and ways. Should we have to leave, what do we do, leave a leg in Germany, an arm in Holland, another in Italy and our heart in France? We are Europeans, we have the right to live, marry who we choose and work in an United Europe. We should fight for that right.
Thank you for all your contribution so far. I will be cycling to Paris first from Calais then after cycling route towards Bordeaux. Any support with accommodation would be very welcomed.
Good luck Rafal - it's a great idea to walk El Camino and raising funds for the EU Green Card will give many EU citizens in the UK and Britons abroad the hope that their lives can start to get back to normal post Brexit
