Finnish Blogger Satu Vänskä-Westgarth is now nearing the final stages of her incredible 2,500km cycle along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. From beautiful scenery and people more hills now lie ahead for Satu as memories of the early stages in Donegal come flashing back.
The Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest defined coastal route and takes in some of the most stunning and dramatic scenery Ireland can offer. Satu is nearing the end of her incredible 2,500km cycle along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. Satu’s stamina and enthusiasm is as high as the Slieve League Cliffs that she once climbed and the determination to beat the tourist buses for photo opportunities is spurring them on.
As Satu entered the beautiful Co.Kerry its famous reputation started to get Satu thinking about what to expect from this famous Irish county. Could Kerry live up to its expectation or will the final stages of Ride Wild 2014 fall a little flat? Fall flat it did not as the wild side of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way was truly revealed in Week 4. The stormy displays at Valentia Lighthouse were certainly wild as Satu felt the full wrath of Ireland's west coast. Along with storms came the inevitable Irish promise of a beautiful rainbow tempting Satu to push a little harder to find the pot of gold but a swim at Derrynane beach proved to be more appealing than Kerry’s riches.
With the Kerry beauty also came the girl power as Satu was now joined by Kate Cornfield and Åsa who will be with Satu for the remainder of the cycle. The ladies took in the amazing castles, ruins and old buildings and also managed to visit a chocolate factory, learn why Charlie Chaplin had a fondness for Kerry and discover what villages should really look like.
