A 15,000 km Journey Along the Andes
Status: Adventure Completed!
Result: Fundraising goal of $500 reached.

Earth. A finite and the fragile element. An opportunity to learn more about one's limits and strengths.

On November 1, 2005, I stepped over the equator in Quito, Ecuador. For the next 6 months, I was to travel from the middle of the Earth to the infamous southern tip, Cape Horn, using whatever means necessary.

It was a memorable journey, and feel free to share it with me by watching any of the films below. By selling hard copies of these videos to family and friends, I was able to raise over $500 which in turn was donated to charity.
