Cycling the world isn't enough. It's been done before and it's just become a competition to see who can do it the quickest. Unfamiliar encounters and meeting the unexpected is real adventure. A rickshaw taxi is an open invitation for anyone to jump in and get a ride! What more of an incentive is there to pay what and how you want! This could be anything that would really help me on my way, obviously the essentials of surviving are nice, but some entertainment is just as good.
I want to discover the real world and achieve this by meeting people who will show me this. It's a new way to travel and openly interact freely with people along the way. This adventure is not pedal powered, but people powered. It's an experimental research project to see what is truly possible to learn and discover through generosity and hospitality.
I will attempt to pick up passengers whilst travelling, but people can become passengers through this website. There more people interested in advance, the better I can plan my route and connect each location together. Each country and region will present its own problems. For its success, I will need the generosity, hospitality and the friendship from the people I meet.
Each passenger can travel to any 'reasonable' destination. Once each passenger arrives at their destination, they will be asked to sign my taxi log book where they have an opportunity to share their own message to the World. In return the passenger can pay what and how they want for the journey. This will be a rewarding experience and it will help me on my long journey around the world.
I live for adventure and looking for new unique challenges to push our perceptions of what is possible.
I seek to explore the world and learn more about it and its people and share this with everyone. We cannot expect to be satisfied by not engaging our curiosity and seeing the real picture and this is only achieved getting outside our comfort zone. Therefore I am no stranger to the cold, starvation or pain and I attempt to push endurance to new levels. Without the support and help from people I meet and know this would never be have been possible.
I believe that connecting with the people of the world and sharing these experiences drives our understanding of cultures. We ourselves can reflect on these answers to understand who we are and how we fit into our global community.
