It’s Ordinary Person Chris Farrugia with a uptate for you.
As everyone is well aware, my RIDE AROUND THE WORLD is strictly for the purpose of raising money fpr extremely needy children, some of which are very sick and on the doorstep of death.
So far, donations have not been made other than the occasional free meal, hospitality and discounts of which I am deeply grateful but the reality of it is that this is not a FUN RIDE.
I was hoping people would see my extreme effort and match me with donating something, anything, to the children however small.
I am not giving up the ride. I have committed to do something to help these children.
So, I will change my tack. I have more to offer you and will be sharing something new very soon.
You are invited to stay connected and I am convinced that together we will come up with something.
The lines are open. WRITE IN WITH REQUSETS, SUGGESTIONS, COMMENTS or just a friendly hello!
I look forward to your replies.
Until then, be safe, be happy and make EVERY DAY COUNT!
After one gets past the initial shock of, “You are riding your bike around the world?” people understand, warm up to her, and become inspired by Christine Farrugia’s current adventure.
What started with research and training back in March of 2011, the first peddling began in Pasadena, Calif. in early December.
The plan was simple, yet complex in its own right. Farrugia’s plan is to ride her bike around the world, visit a few orphanages she supports, while inspiring people to take notice of her extreme task.
Her task will hopefully bring attention to the extreme need for orphanage support.

Everything is great and I am taking a rest!.
I plan to be here at least 2 weeks. I am finding very interesting things in Tucson and quite frankly I have fallen in love with the place. The University of AZ is here, Univ. Med Center as well.
There is appreciation for the arts and I like that very much. I plan to hike a trail up the Catalina MT here right on the edge of town.
The weather is absolutely perfect right now. The people here at Inn Suites have refused to take a nickel from me. I did say I wanted to stay for a bit so they have kindly extended a very low weekly rate which includes a very big breakfast.
Archeology is very popular, they find all kinds of things here in the desert. There is a huge gem and stone show, also fossils, end of Jan and people with collections from all over the world converge here. I may very well stay for this event. So everything is great. This is truly a happy place!
When I walk down the street, I ask different people if they live here. When they say yes, I ask if they like living here and what do they like best. Everyone has the same answer. Know what that answer is?
They say “THE PEOPLE”
Isn’t that great!
Greetings from Tucson.
I am still here in the “Old Pueblo”.
I will be staying in Tucson for a couple of weeks to explore the area. Lots of interesting things here in the desert.
I have videos to upload to good stuff coming your way!
Everyone Happy New Year and ………
All my best,
