How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? The answer to this question was searched by Bob Dylan, as well as the British author Douglas Adams. In “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, Douglas Adams proposes a theory, that before being called a man, one must walk down exactly 42 roads, while Bob Dylan merely states that the answer is blowing in the wind.
The search for the answer must begin somewhere, so why not start by testing Adams’ theory in practice? The first step in our quest to find the answer is the journey from Riga, Latvia to its antipode – “The Road Less Travelled to the Place Furthest Away” expedition.
The adventure began 15th September 2014 in the capital of Latvia and has taken us through 15 countries and 28th November 2015 we arrived in New Zealand. Of course, we still need to reach the furthest inhabited place from our homes – Pitt Island.
We are three friends, ordinary people with a passion for the unordinary.
