Arriving at Punta Lapataia in Ushuaia, January 2012


Chael (pron. keyl) is from Chicago, Illinois in the United States. In 2007, he began hitching in France, and has since found himself on many roads, and for much longer than initially planned. Over the years, he has come to share the belief with some fellow hitchers than plans are the killers adventure. Now, he follows roads based on ideas alone.


Velabas

He maintains a virtual presence at Velabas.com. Velabas is meant to document his travels throughout the world. Although his most recent exploits began in August of 2009, it was a full year before he began writing at Velabas.

Velabas is not only to document his travels, but to share drawings and ficiton witing as well. The idea of the website is to claim his own space in the virtual world outside of any pre-fabricated format web builder. It is also meant to link to like-minded travelers' websites in order to foster global connections.

The journey is not a continuous one, the idea being that he will take breaks when necessary. However, the journey must always pick up exactly where it had left off, to create a global continuity of road and water travel.
