Benoit is 36 years old (in 2019) and just like society expected, he had a job, an apartment, a car & the right amount of friends. In the garage a few toys, which didn’t get out a lot because ‘we are so busy’.
It felt it was time to change some things, and it would probably be something with travelling.
To keep it short, he bought a bike, made it an ebike, added a trailer with solar panels to charge the bike and filled the trailer with a kayak and freediving gear.
On April 1st at 10 am he left home and started pedalling north with a new ID: Sun Biker.
He’s doing this journey for the joy of traveling, the enlightenment of meeting so many great people. The budget of his trip is low. He’s living a nomadic life. Which is a great experience in our capitalist surrounding.
If you might be curious in this way of travelling around the world and learn some tips and tricks from Ben – watch the video.
