The young man asked his cousin for advice on how to clear his head and he told him to take a long walk. Lemanski did just that. The traveler decided to make the journey in April 2016 after going through a period of depression. (Chris Lemanski ) In April 2016, Lemanski decided on the journey after looking up trails and saw one that went from Istanbul, Turkey to Portugal. The traveler said everything appeared to shift into place after he purchased a cheap ticket to Istanbul. Lemanski made the trek in 18 months, three of those months he was stuck in Morocco after he overstayed his visa for about three months. However, he was able to sneak out of the country and catch a boat to Germany where he continued his journey. As for how much money he spent in 18 months, Lemanski said he saved and people were generous.
