The longest walk
After 11 years, 46,600 miles, 64 countries and 53 pairs of shoes, Canadian Jean Beliveau is coming home from the longest uninterrupted walk around the world.
Mr Beliveau, now 56, left Montreal on his 45th birthday, August 18, 2000, after his small sign business went bankrupt, leaving behind his girlfriend and two grown-up sons.
Waiting for him in Montreal is his longtime girlfriend Luce Archambault, who has supported him throughout his adventure and created a website detailing his travels: wwwalk.org
Over 11 years, he travelled across deserts and mountains. He fell in love for nine days in Mexico, and wore a turban and a long beard in Sudan.
He ate insects in Africa, dog in South Korea and snake in China, and was escorted by armed soldiers in the Philippines.
