article imageMan travelling to every country in the world, without flying

By Kev Hedges     Nov 17, 2014 in Travel
A man is planning on travelling to every single country in the world in one single journey, with no flying or use of air planes whatsoever.
Torbjorn is travelling into every country in the world acting as a goodwill ambassador for the Danish Red Cross and Red Crescent. It is a journey that has never been completed before and is expected to take the Danish traveller about four years to complete. So far, Torbjorn has already visited 65 countries on this trip and will document, photograph, blog and video his entire journey on social media.
The project is entitled "Once Upon a Saga" and so far there has already been many adventures and experiences, including a tricky North Atlantic crossing and his journey into the warm tropical islands of the Caribbean.
Torbjorn, which translates into Thor and Bear is currently in the Caribbean island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The entire journey and its purpose is to travel to every country and meet people, experience cultures, taste life, break down barriers, and to adventure.
After he has completed his journey around the Caribbean Torbjorn will travel to Africa. On his Reddit AMA he stated he is doing exactly what he was meant to do in life:
So far it has been a great adventure, and day after day, I feel increasingly confident that I am doing exactly what I am meant to do in life. I would love to share my experience with the Reddit community, and it's a great opportunity to let as many people as possible know about this project.
However, in typical response from the Reddit community - well known for cynicism, flippancy and often irreverent comments - users were asking how he plans to get through countries like Syria and North Korea. His response was to say the Red Cross would provide some assistance and North Korea does dish out tourist visas, although he is after a more "authentic" view of the secretive nation.
