Sixty-nine-year-old Australian motorcyclist Ronald Fellowes, who started his journey from Nepal a few months ago, will reach Multan on Wednesday after a brief stop-over in Lahore.
Fellowes, a diesel mechanic by profession, is travelling on a 1910 model motorcycle. He said he had bought the motorcycle 40 years ago and fixed it.
He said he started the journey some four months ago. He travelled through some countries in South Asia before entering Pakistan.
“I want to show the world that age is no hurdle to achieving something, given one has the passion for it,” he said.
Fellowes said his journey through Pakistan so far has been peaceful. He said most of the people he had met were very generous and that he would recommend people to visit Pakistan at least once.
