On June 12th Frank left from the norwegian lighthouse of Slettnes in Barents sea, for a 5280 km trip, 4000 km of cycling, 1280 km canoeing. He got home in Corsica at the lighthouse of Lavezzi on Friday October 5th at 11,46 after a 116 days commitment. Joining the northernmost semaphore of continental Europe to the southernmost one of France was a considerable challenge for Frank who hat to outdo himself every day.
The weather conditions were abominable the first two months on the Barents sea before he reached Mehamn in Norway , then he cycled across Lapland for 1000 km. In Lulea, Sweden, he recovered his kayak to sail across the gulf of Botnie and part of the Baltic sea to Stockholm, 1100 km in 42 days. From there, he cycled across Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Italy down to Tuscany, on a 3000 km ride.
The last thing to do was to reach his hometown of Bonifacio across the Mediterranean sea which had been hard to manage until the last day.
He did not undertake these adventures for a cause...he is the cause of it !
