In the year 2012, Hong cycled over 18,000KM, and across 16 countries, to make his dream of solo cycling a reality.
His original idea was to reach the UK via Thailand, Laos, China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Hungary, Austria, Germany, and France.
However, his plan changed once he learned that Bulgaria and Hungary didn't share a border, as well as the India-China border was closed. The glitches caused him to re-route and travel via Thailand, Laos, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Italy, and France, to UK.
Hong recently shared his experience on Facebook and the pictures he took along the way. Here's how his incredible journey began:
