Thor Pedersen – a Danish traveller- has just completed his mission to visit every country in the world in a single trip without flying.
During his 3,512-day voyage, he visited 203 countries, including several disputed territories not included on the United Nations' official list, BBC reports.
From a container ship off the coast of the Maldives, he told BBC that his journey included a two-year stopover in Hong Kong due to the Covid lockdown and two marriages.
During his interview, Thor acknowledged that nonstop travel has not always been simple.
He spent four months attempting to enter Equatorial Guinea, and during long bus rides, he would frequently gaze up at an airplane and wonder what he was doing with his life.
