Agartala, May 7: We all "dream", but most often we keep it in a "cold storage" to let it die an "unnatural death". But Spanish cyclist Elias Escribano not only dreamt, but he took his two-wheeler to travel across the world in a period of 22 months.
After covering 27 nations, Escribano recently reached the northeastern state of Tripura in India to tell us all to "live your dream". So far in a period of 22 months he has covered 25,000 km on his bicycle. That is a great feat in itself. Isn't it?
"Elias Escribano, a cyclist from Spain who is on a world tour with the message 'Live your Dream', has reached the state of #Tripura. During his 22-month journey, he has already covered 25,000 km & has crossed 27 nations till now," tweeted ANI.

Since he has been travelling for almost two years now, Escribano is carrying a couple of bags on his bicycle. The bags are filled with clothes, food and other daily requirements. Otherwise, he is just sporting a pair of cycling shorts, t-shirt and of course, a helmet to keep him safe in case of an untoward incident.
Impressed by his zeal and determination, people of Tripura gave him a warm welcome and these days he is flaunting a traditional shawl from the state as he went ahead in his journey.
Next time your "secret fantasy" haunts you, please don't stop yourself, just go ahead like Escribano has embarked on his long and arduous journey.
