Wondering what’s so special about his journey? Well, it’s the fact that Vishnudas is the son of a farmer from the drought-affected Marathwada belt. And, he is on a brave journey to circumnavigate the world by land on a shoe-string budget.

Vishnu does not live in lavish hotels. He sleeps in temples and railway stations, does whatever work comes his way. So far, Vishnu has crossed 10000 kms through India, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand and China on his trip. His next destination is Australia, a Facebook friend of his, Nitasha Natu, shared on social media.

These photos of him travelling the world tell a story that will inspire you for sure.
