Arjun Bhogal is on a mission. In 2012, he and a university friend challenged themselves to travel from their hometown in Cardiff, South Wales, United Kingdom, to New South Wales in Australia. Conventional travellers they were not. Instead of getting on the plane, the duo chose to travel by foot, turning their planned trip into a project called ‘Borderwalk’. Now, after four years and almost five months, Arjun arrived in Indonesia, roughly 5,000 kilometres away from his final destination. No longer with his walking partner, who quit after spending one year and a half on the road, Arjun is still as determined as he ever was. Walking, though, isn’t the only thing he’s doing. During his adventure, Arjun is also producing a documentary that highlights the global need for clean water.
“Coming from a European country, I often take clean water for granted as I can get it easily. Clean water is accessible everywhere. However, many countries in the world need to struggle to find water to accommodate their daily needs. So we want to see the real situation out there and share it with the rest of the world. It has been an eye-opening experience that I hope can inspire others,” said Arjun. One major goal of this walk is to raise money for charities working in water and marine conservation, protecting our worlds most precious environment and our most precious resource.
