One Year On Foot

Christoph Rehage, 27, is from Munich, Germany. From November 9, 2007—November 13, 2008, he traveled the vast regions of China solely on foot—starting from Beijing and ending up in Ürümqi. In the process, he grew a substantial amount of hair.

There are instances where you can see him in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks he had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
