    In 2008, I walked through China - 1 year, 4500km.

    I let my hair and my beard grow.

    This is the resulting video.

    INFO:
    ▶ I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany.

    Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.
    ▶ All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking.

    There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
    ▶ I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
    ▶ Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
    ▶ This is not a strict "1 pic a day" video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement.

    Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background.

    I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.

    ▶ The core of this project is in actually my blog where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.
