This is a page, Keiichi the author and traveler , describes my travels with very low budget and How it is going.Keiichi Iwasaki,I am Japanese.
Traveling Since 2002 I left Japan ,Never return ,Never go back, keep traveling until today (April,2022).
It means 20 years I have kept traveling.
After I left Japan, I went across South Asian countries and past Tibet across Himalayan range, to India.
and Passing through Pakistan and Iran to Europe.And now I am in Italy(Year 2022).
You are wondering “Am I missing Japan or not” Actually not so much because my parent and friends sometimes to see me during this 20 years
and Nowadays we can easily contact over Internet ,
Also almost every day I meet new people and that makes me feel lonely.
Sometimes I miss Japanese food though.
if you travel very quick ,It only takes few months for around the world ,But I am going slow by using local bicycle, It takes a lot of time ,And I can see much more things and meet more people living in this world.
This style is my favorite.Usually I am using local bicycle, And till 2022 I changed 4times my bike .Because of twice stolen and twice broken.
Many people ask me, “why you do this kind of traveling?”,
I always say , “If I use airplane to come here, I just only see here ,But If I use bicycle and come slowly I could see more things.(but It takes a lot of time)It is important for me, to know “what is the world like” ,
more than living one place peacefully.For keeping travel I show Magic tricks on street where I visit. These years I tried to participate some of Got’s Talent TV program in Europe countries. You can see some of Video which I was in Got’s talent from my Youtube channel
