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. Suddenly I 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 was there 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.

If you want to follow their big foot journey, then you can check out their website
