Jean Béliveau of Montreal will finish an 11-year uninterrupted walk around the world this month.

From the Toronto Star:

He walked through America, Mexico, Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia. Through dozens of pairs of shoes. Through doubt. Joy. Imprisonment. Culture shock. Even, for a time, through puppy-dog love.

…Béliveau began this improbable trek after his neon sign business fizzled. But, he admits, his mind was already elsewhere, a mid-life crisis looming: “I had other things in my heart to fulfill before I died.”
