A Siberian traveller, Konstantin Zhuravlyov, has hitchhiked around the world, visiting 37 countries in 777 days.

      Zhuravlyov, 31, a Tomsk resident, started his big travel on June 18, 2010, first visited Europe, then spent four and a half months in Africa, crossed the ocean, spending a long time in South America and completed his journey in Asia.

      Zhuravlyov admitted that he couldn't visit some countries due to tough visa requirements and also didn't visit Australia and Antarctica continents. He had to buy airplane tickets twice in order to cross the oceans.

       The whole journey cost a total of about 250,000 rubles ($8,000), and 10,000 rubles ($314) per month.

      Zhuravlyov’s backpack weighed about 10 kilograms, including a tent, a camera, a computer, batteries and souvenirs. His tent was stolen in Cuba and Konstantin for two days had to sleep in the street, wrapping himself in a Russian flag.
