For Felix Starck, what began as a jokingly-announced idea – biking the world – quickly became a realized ambition. Now, over a year later, the German-born adventurer has finished the quest of pedaling through 22 countries (over 18,000 km or 1,118 miles) and is ready to share his experience. Starck may have had what some would call the perfect life: a recently obtained college degree, promising job lined up, a girlfriend, and family comfortably located in his German hometown. However, he also had a fierce case of Wanderlust. This spurred the mission to bike across four continents in 365 days, capture all parts (the good and the bad) with his camera, and discern for himself the way he wanted to perceive the world.

As many philosophers would propose, the desire to transcend, to experience, to push boundaries and live to tell the tale is the driving factor of the human experience; such could be claimed as motivation for Felix. While the journey was not without its difficult times – his partner quit on him, he was robbed, overcame pneumonia, and had a family member die – he met incredible people, learned to thrive outside of his comfort zone, and told HuffPost, “[I] wouldn’t change a thing.”
