EMMA

This is my beautiful wife "Emma".... She was my best friend, love of my life and motivation to complete my trip. 

 

Emma passed away in February last year following illness and a brave five year battle.  Emma had achieved so much in her life and was the kindest, most loving and giving person I knew.

 

Her first passion was flying. Following her diagnosis, she had to give up her job as a commercial pilot, but despite three operations, chemo and radiotherapy, she still found the drive and energy to fulfil other dreams.  She opened a shop, completed an interior design course at college, was a loving Aunty and ran the Berlin Marathon raising funds for cancer charities. All whilst in remission! 

 

And of course she married me!

 

She is truly the inspiration for my trip!          

 

Thank you Emma xx

LOTTE

This is my best friend and travel companion "Lotte" - my amazing working Cocker Spaniel dog.

 

She is 3 years old and just loves being outside. Her favourite things are birds and wildlife. She will quite often watch a nature programme on television from start to finish!

 

She has a bespoke handmade bed to attach to the tandem and a special harness that will keep her safe.

AND THIS IS ME

My name is Dave Goodey.

 

I am a Pilot by trade, I live in Hampshire, England with Lotte, my beloved dog.

 

Over the last year or so I have been coping with the emotions of bereavement following the loss of Emma, my beautiful wife. It has been tough, but I am getting there with a little help from my friends and family.

 

I am hoping this trip will be another milestone in my recovery and a tribute to my wife Emma, who has inspired me to fund raise in her memory xx
