Working his way around the world doing odd jobs in hostels and restaurants, Asquith managed to accrue the more than $150,000 required to fund his journey. Using planes, trains, boats and any conveyance necessary, he often had to adapt his travel plans on the fly. He also spent five months traveling within the U.S. having visited 27 states from Alaska to Hawaii. Much of the six months he spent in Africa included overland travel with border crossings proving to be the most challenging aspect of his travels. Having traveled to many countries during periods of severe unrest, he said he simply, “put my trust in the locals.”
His epic journey has only wetted his appetite for travel and he’s already started a list of places to visit next. When wanderlust takes hold, there’s only one way to satisfy it––travel.
