Standing next to Jenn who is walking from Bangkok to Barcelona with Lluís.
Two days ago, i was cycling down the road in the Bihar province in rural India. I suddenly noticed a guy walking past me in the opposite direction. He was wearing a big backpack and did not look like an Indian. So I stopped my bike to see who that was in the middle of nowhere.
This was Lluís From Catalunya and just as i said hello to him another person emerged and that was his girlfriend Jenn, who is Croatian American.
They told me that they are on a very long journey by foot. They are walking from Bangkok to Barcelona and have so far walked through Thailand, Myanmar and Bangladesh. And they also took a little detour by plane to Pamir Highway while it was monsoon season in the Bengal region and walked around there.
And here I was, thinking that my 1900 kilometer bicycle journey through India was a long journey :-).
We only spoke for about 10-15 minutes, but they struck me as an utterly sympathetic couple and I wish them all the best.
