Roberto Moretti, “seated” for 12 years. He never lost the desire to travel.

 

 

The way to Santiago (Camino de Santiago) is not just a journey: it is "the Journey". Requires physical strength, soul, listening, humility. And humility could be also giving up the arm strength and choose an electric vehicle that is flexible enough to take along every path, with stones, fords, climbs and Steep hills. Free to go. With his body, his mind, his heart.

 

Free to fulfill the "Buen camino".

"Patrizia, my wife, really wanted to do that: undertaking a journey with the spirit of a pilgrim. And I wanted to be there, my desire was to be by her side."

These are the first words of Roberto Moretti, disable for 12 years because of an accident. In June 2015, he traveled 350 km on the Camino de Santiago aboard his Genny.

Roberto and Patrizia have always traveled. Even his limited mobility never obstructed their passion. The idea of even undertake a journey, however, was unthinkable even for them. Until they met Genny.

"With a normal wheelchair is very difficult to travel, there are some destinations or modalities that are virtually impossible ... I used my wheelchair and I stupidly refused to think of an electric vehicle for my journeys.

 

I realized that my arms are essential to preserve my independence, and all the efforts I make to move the wheelchair quickly wear out my joints compromising every movement, especially in the future."

This is the reason that led Roberto to try Genny. And it was love at first sight.

 

 

"Thanks to Genny, I gained the proper control of my mobility. It convinced me to take peacefully the Camino de Santiago"

 

 

350 kilometers, from Leon to Santiago, all along the path of the“yellow arrows”, a path usually run by "normal" travellers. A journey full of charm, but also of difficulty, through large fields, mule trails, river crossings, long climbs and steep descents.

 

 

The journey of Roberto was a rebirth:

 

 

"It was amazing! The happiness was definitely stronger than the fatigue.

I really enjoyed the feeling of riding, watching the scenery, feel the stones, through the woods, touch the streams lightly and even the sea (who seemed impossible years ago).

Now I'm already thinking the next way forward, maybe in Italy, perhaps along the Via Francigena"
