Finnish travel blogger Satu Vänskä-Westgarth is about to take on the challenge of a lifetime by cycling the entire Wild Atlantic Way, or some 2,500km along Ireland’s western seaboard over the next five weeks.
Satu arrived in Ireland over the weekend at the invite of tourism Ireland and set off from Malin Head in Co. Donegal yesterday on 5th August. She plans to cycle approximately 100km each day, five days a week, and then take the weekends off to rest. Her aim is to visit almost every corner of the West of Ireland, arriving in Kinsale on 5th September. She will be joined by a Norwegian friend for the first two weeks and an English friend for the final few weeks of the journey.
Hundreds of thousands of people in Scandinavia, and elsewhere around the world, are set to read all about Satu's journey. She will document her five-week trip with daily updates on her Destination Unknown travel blog, as well as on the popular online magazine, Skimbaco Lifestyle.
