Hi, I'm Lukas Matthys
I'm just an ordinary guy who wants to see the world and meet many different cultures.
During the last years my studies didn't allow for a lot of free time. The urge to go "out there" and explore this world, I'm supposed to be a part of, grew. The desire to travel wasn't new though.
During my teens I used to travel within Europe by train or I hitched a ride. This taught me how to travel on a tight budget and still experience the country. A skill that should prove very usefull on this trip.
The idea to travel over land came to me after I visited Nepal for a school project. The understanding struck me that those two very different worlds lie only a few flight hours away from each other. I wondered what I had missed by flying. I wanted to see how the faces, skin colours and cultures Change on the way.
