(International Day of Sport for development & Peace)
Starting on April 6th the plan is to undertake a 3000km (1865 mile) solo-walk from the host city for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games (Buenos Aires) to the host city for the 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games (Rio de Janeiro). The journey will take at least 150 days and take me through 4 countries. The aim is to arrive into Rio de Janeiro on 22nd August, 2016–the Closing day of the Olympic Games. As always I shall be supported by my wife Xuelin who goes ahead to plan the way and stays behind to pay the bills.
