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
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).
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.
