Episode details

I talk to Brit Kev Shannon about his ambitious adventure to walk across Serbia.

It took Kevin Shannon only one kilometre before he found his first Serbian friend. The young British adventurer was bicycling across Europe in 2010 and had just crossed the Serbian border for the first time when a running man flagged him down.

Unsure of what to expect from a yelling stranger in Serbia, a country he only knew from war reporting and stereotypes, Shannon was pleasantly surprised when the man invited him for a beer.

“I ended up staying with that man and his family for three days, as long as I had planned on being in Serbia,” Shannon recalls.
