The ambassador on wheels

They call me 'Jinji', but I was born Roei Sadan. I am exotic. Not only because of my hair color, but because of my life mission: I am on a four year bicycle journey around the world.

They call me 'Jinji', but I was born Roei Sadan. I am 28, and I am exotic. Not only because of my hair color, but because of my life mission. I am currently on a four year bicycle journey around the world. I have completed three years, and am currently in the great country of China - starting off in the west.

I have biked from Alaska to the tip of Patagonia (America), from Cape to north Ethiopia (Africa), from Spain to Istanbul (Europe) and now I am on the last leg of my trip - starting with west China (Asia). I plan on biking to Beijing, then to south east Asia. I will travel to Australia and end up in Sidney. From there I will fly to Jordan and finally complete my travels at the kotel (wailing wall). Hopefully you can find me there come May, 2011 (depending on the traffic).



I have cycled for over three years and have trekked over 50000 kilometers. I have been on five continents, and 36 countries. All this on one bike - and with one emuna (which means faith in Hebrew, but it is also the name of my bike).




While I cycle across continents I am not alone. I visit Israeli embassies around the globe, I give lectures at schools and I tell the world about Israel - and how it is more than what the media will have them believe. Some call me the "ambassador on wheels."





I have my family and friends back home. I did not plan this trip to run away from something, rather I am running (or biking) to something! This has always been a dream of mine, and I am chasing after it. Each day I push my limits, and I hope that you can be inspired to push yours as well.





This isn't a competition. There are no prizes. There is no glory - only the glory of man fulfilling his destiny.



This blog will not be your average blog - I will not tell you where to go, what to see or what to do. This blog is for me to share my dream of traveling the world with you, and if I am lucky, I will be able to inspire you to follow your own dreams.
