From Rome to Norway by Bicycle

Antonella Gentile is a 33 years old girl and last year she decided to help a Non-profit organization with a crowdfunding initiative. 
The organization is AMREF and it is committed to improve the health of people in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities, and strengthening health systems. 

How did she start this crowdfunding? Travelling from Rome to Northest Norway by bicycle, pedalling for 5 thousand kilometers in 183 days (5 months) and using couchsurfing to sleep. 
She had only a backpack 
with her, with few t-shirts, some sweaters, gloves and two pair of shoes. 

Antonella said that her adventurous trip was incredible but also hard, especially when she arrived to Norway, where the weather was not indulgent and the dark period was starting
She has found a lot of hospitable friends, but unfortunately almost at the end of her trip, she was scared from a sort of stalker that followed her trough her Facebook page. 
Thankfully everything ended in the best possible way and now Antonella is back to Italy, planning her graduation in Oriental Languages. 

Ikis has financed one of Antonella's nights in Norway and we are very proud to know that there are younger italian people so active in social activities.
