Like some latter day Ted Simon of Jupiters Travels fame, Kane Avellano arrived back to South Shields last week – a day shy of his 24th birthday following an epic 32,000 miles global journey.

He set off last May and in the eight months since visited 35 countries over six continents

“I had the chance to discover what the world really has to offer, to meet many different people along the way and explore their cultures, religions and behaviours, while having an incredible time.”

As well as the experience of the circumnavigation he also took the journey as to raise awareness and sponsorship funds for the children’s charity UNICEF.

One Comment to “Globetrotter”

  1. As a Shields man myself I have been following Kane on instagram since he set off from Shields town hall six months ago, sadly not able to get back to see him return, but a friend was there to take some photos to record the event. A great journey, perhaps something Mr Trump could benefit from, seeing ordinary people in Muslim countries getting on with life, & being friendly & helpful.
    Well done Kane.
