I began to see places away from the town I grew up since I was a teenager.I didn’t like the school and didn’t like the way they wanted me to go in that time,afterwards,I created my own path and I spent more than half of my life for seeing “something different” or “something new”.

Since 2016,I had my writing blog and since 2020,I had my video channel.微信公众号:在路下
B站&西瓜视频:啊聪zuo
Youtube:啊聪

I make videos and share my experience but I hate people call me “YouTuber” or “Influencer”..

I wrote two E-book about my journey between 2009-2021.(in Chinese.)I still sell it.

I made more than 400 videos and I got income support from some video platforms in China.And I really love my works.(It was also one of my childhood dream)

I have most of my followers in China but I do also have a English version video channel on YouTube: shancon

or :https://youtube.com/channel/UCtYm7CKpwj595kbBZjTf6-w

Sometimes I do also make performance on the street or in the bar(I always have a guitar with me and I play and sing my own melody in general and I have recorded about 50 songs from myself )But I hate people call me “Artist” or “Musician”.

I am just myself.

CURRENT MISSION

To complete my journey to every visit every single country in the world in the next 3 or 5 years.

To across West Africa from Morocco by land border since this winter of 2022.

PHILOSOPHY

Time is one of the most expensive thing in life if I decide to spend some time with you that means my especially respects to you.

Everybody will be lonely and always has desire.

Human being are all the same as human being.

I don't like to have any so called “title” for myself,I am just a ordinary humankind like you and others.

Music, Movies, and Books

I write my own song and I dont like dont wanna get influenced by others so Usually I only listen something I don't understand(especially if I don't understand the meaning of lyric or the language) I am okay like this kind.And actually I dont like to call “music”and I dont like the word for example like “Musician” and “Artist”,don’t use it for me although 90% people will relate them to me as I make my own performance with my singing and guitar.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

If you compare with other 80% percent explorer,these may be amazing things:

I left my home alone for another town 20km away when I was 12.I did it by bicycle.

I had 10.000km+ bicycle from my age 12-my age 20.

I rode my bicycle from Chengdu to Lhasa until everst camp in 2011 and I was 17 years old.

I rode my bicycle from central China to Siberia Russia when I was 18 years old.

I did one circle trip of the planet 2016-2018 from Asia-Africa-South America-North America-Asia,I started it within 15 US dollars..And I was on a TV in Bolivia in 2017 cause of that:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z9CxKd5HGE&t=182s

I used to live in Lhasa and been twice western part of Xizang(Tibet autonomous region).I did two times walk circle around kangrinboqe mountain in 2011 and 2014.

The highest peak I been so far in my life is 5800 meters high around Kangrinboqe mountain.

I did a month trip started it with “0 money” in Middle south of China in March of 2013.And I didn't carry even a phone..

I hitchhiked from Beijing to Moscow then until Murmansk in 2014.

I hitchhiked from Buenos Aries to Ushuaia then to northern Chile in 2017.

I had ever been robbed by a guy who has a gun when I was hitchhiking in Russian Siberia in 2013 but eventually I grabbed his gun and threw it away,I ran to a passing car and I were saved by them.

I walked from Lhasa,China to Kathmandu,Nepal only walking(55 days)in 2014.Mostly on the national road.But only by walking.

I walked from Dali China to Lamprabang,Lao (2 months)only walking..no ride neither.In 2015.

I did “Cairo to Cape Town ” all the way crossing 14 eastern side African countries in 5 months by land in 2016 and 2017

I camped nearby the Pyramid of Egypt and Sudan…😂

I helped non English speakers for translation when arrival in 🇧🇸Bahamas(they asked help),a rude immigration suspect I am a human smuggler then I was forced to detention by 🇧🇸Bahama immigration for 5 days with almost no reason.I were released after my explaining in the 5th day..

I were suspected that I am a spy from US by Iranian police..I were forced to the jail for 15 days in one of my favorite country and also my no.100 country 🇮🇷Iran..I was realeased after they figured out I am just a innocent tourist.

And I am getting forgot a lot of experience from the past..

Teach, Learn, Share

I would learn more about dancing especially like Salsa or Pachata or any other local culture.

I would learn different language especially Spanish.Estoy aprendiendo espñol.

I would learn more about outdoor skills and more swimming skills.

I would try different food and learn more about cooking,like how to prepare different local food from all over the world which I like.

And I could prepare something I like from other region of the world for example Plov of Central Asia or Indian milk tea,chai…

Sunset time~Coffee time or beer time.Delicious food time.My limited time.
