"The Strait Story"
Swedish Club News - English - Thursday January 1, 2015
On Friday, Jan. 16, Seattle-based, Franco-American expeditionist Dimitri Kieffer will visit the Swedish Club to give a talk on his adventures while walking across the Bering Strait. This trip was the beginning of his quest to travel around the globe solely under human power. His Nexus Expedition World Circumnavigation began in Anchorage, Alaska, in 2005. Thus far Dimitri has traveled 17,814 km (11,069 miles), trekking, skiing, swimming, paddling and biking across the Bering Strait, then into and across Russia, Mongolia and China as well as Central Asia.
Dimitri is currently planning the next leg of his expedition for 2015–16: cycling and paddling from Central Asia to southwest Africa, rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, cycling through Latin America to reach his second antipode in Chile, and finally cycling back north to return to the starting point of his expedition in Alaska. At completion, the trip will total approximately 60,000 km (38,000 miles). Read more about Dimitri and his adventures at www.nexusexpedition.com. His talk begins at 7 p.m.
