Today I Learned (TIL), about a man named Mario Rigby who walked from Cape Town, South Africa, to Cairo, Egypt. It took him 2 years and he walked 7,456 miles. He trekked through eight countries — South Africa, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt. He even travelled across a few rivers and lakes (by kayak). Rigby stated that he was greeted with kindness in most villages on his journey and even offered free lodging and food. Amazing story and you can read it all here.
