Romeo Cox and his father Phil embarked on a 93-day journey from Palermo to London to visit Romeo’s grandma, Rosemary.
Travel took them to Italy, Switzerland, and France on foot and was filled with many incredible experiences, but also came with its fair share of dangers.
Along the way, they had to fend off packs of stray dogs in Rome and tame wild donkeys in England.
The journey was not easy as they had to spend the night in a variety of places such as churches, hostels, campsites, and even on the floors of strangers’ houses.
But they were fortunate to have met many kind people along the way who offered them a warm meal and a place to rest.
The journey was not only physically challenging but also emotionally taxing for Romeo as he missed his grandmother.
Finally, on September 21st, Romeo and Phil completed their journey on foot and arrived at Trafalgar Square.
After a 14-day quarantine period, Romeo finally got to meet his granny.
Upon their return home on Southborough Road, the family was greeted with loud applause by the neighbors.
A group of the local residents joined Romeo and his father Phil as they walked from Trafalgar Square to Rosemary’s house.
Afterwards, a small gathering was organized with cake and champagne, where Romeo recounted the exciting tale of his journey.
The journey was a test of strength and determination for Romeo and his father and it brought them closer to Rosemary and the community.
