Korean adventurer Yoon Ok-hwan (43), who is traveling to the corners of the world on his bike, has been to 100 countries during his trip.

On November 9, four years and four months after starting his world tour, he reached Egypt, his 101st country.

Having started his trip in July of 2001, he has been to 100 countries by pedaling an average of 200km per day. The distance he has covered on his bicycle is about 200,000km, a distance long enough to go round the world five times. He has only used airplanes or ships when his path was blocked by geography and he could not ride his bicycle.
