Adventurer and filmmaker Felix Starck cycled 18,000km through 22 countries and four continents in one year. Untrained, with 55kg of baggage and camera equipment, he cycled into the unknown.
Setbacks such as pneumonia, separation from his travel partner, a robbery in Cambodia, and the death of his grandfather made the journey tortuous at times. But he maintained his drive to complete the journey and was rewarded with incredible hospitality from people around the world. He had his share of surreal moments as well: wild elephants in the jungle, New Year’s Eve in Bangkok, geysers in New Zealand, Times Square in New York.
Bottom line: He discovered the world on his own terms.
