The background

How it was by the plane

In 2015 I quitted an office job and took my way to Shaolin Temple. In 2019, an interview with my participation was released on YouTube, which gained over 2 million views in just one week, and over the past years, it has already accumulated more than 9 million views.

Travel is the way

The road will be mastered by on-roading
Despite the challenges of the journey, the pass of borders during the pandemic, I do not call it difficulties, I think of it as a “way”. The way is distinguished by the absence of rigid plans at intermediate points.
