I set out to cycle and paint the Mallett Camino de Santiago to raise awareness of reaching our potential, inspired by my Down’s syndrome brother Martin.
I marked the journey with Martin Mallett name tags and this maps shows not only my route but all the places I left a name tag. You can follow the journey from my strava (@Timmy Mallett) and see the places I visited from the links below. Each place in the table below the map has its GPS and what3words link.
If you ever come across one of the name tags, I’d love to know (please leave it there!). what3words is the simplest way to talk about location. Every three-metre square in the world has been given a three-word address. Now you can refer to any precise location using just three dictionary words. For example, in Chapter 6 of my book (Utterly Brilliant – My Life’s Journey), I left a Martin name tag in the castle gate at Angers, which can be found at the three-word address, ///itself.tickets.removed.
Use the free what3words app to search for the other three-word addresses I encountered along my journey.
