Tweet Jean Beliveau has worn out 43 pairs of shoes over the past nine years -- walking the planet. He arrived in Timor-Leste today and I had a chance to chat with him. Jean is from Montreal and left on his journey on August 18, 2000 -- walking to South America -- flew across the Atlantic -- to the southern tip of Africa and northward. Click on his website, www.wwwalk.org, to see his route.
He says he's walking to promote peace and non-violence. During our chat, he said his plan was to walk from west to east across Timor before heading down to Australia and then New Zealand and then across the south pacific and then walk across southern Canada to Montreal.
Jean expects his trip will take a total of eleven years.
