Singapore to Canada, a trip which would have taken just 21 hours long, has taken 9 long months for this person. No, we are not talking about any Airport Prisoner stuck in between Immigration issues at an airport, nor was it a travel blunder or a stroke of mere bad luck either but a choice, or a dream rather, of a Singaporean to travel from home in Singapore to Canada without a single flight. Sounds strangely foolish but yes, after 9 months of travelling he made it finally to Montreal, Canada today 01-Sept-2019.
This is a story of a 20-year-old Singaporean Boy, with Everest courage on a trip of a lifetime. Read more to know about him.
While I was planning my Singapore trip in December 2017, I reached out to a few active Couchsurfing members there to help me with my itinerary and hosting while I am in their city.. I found an interesting CS profile – the profile of 18-year-old Selva Ganesha Balakrishnan, who had a Facebook page named “Teen gets lost”. At that time, he had already travelled in Europe and many parts of Asia alone then, despite his very young age. Unfortunately, our plans didn’t meet and we didn’t meet but I followed him nonetheless on Instagram/Facebook and was happy to see his travel stories.
