Walking our World

Salaseini Moceiwai

WALKING for thousands of kilometres might be seen as a difficult activity for many but for Australia's Peter Thomas, it's an opportunity to spread the gospel of balance, peace and freedom.

The Wagga Wagga native in Central South West of New South Wales (NSW) said walking had now become his passion.

Mr Thomas, who prefers to be known as Walking our World, is in Fiji until September and has been visiting most of the places by foot.

The Fiji Times met him along the Wailevu West Rd in Cakaudrove where he was sheltering in a triangular-shaped tin shack for a rest on Monday.

"I spent most of my life in the corporate media industry and in December 2012, I made a choice to walk around the world," he said.

"I started my walk in Australia where I walked for about 2000km around the coast of NSW to Sydney and about 3000km in New Zealand.

"The world is fast becoming a mass and its only important to preach the message of peace, balance and freedom will benefit the people.

"With this initiative, I have been invited to speak in schools, media interviews and conferences, it's a chance for me to reach out to the people about my message. Here in Fiji, I walked in most of the parts in the Western Division, Coral Coast to Suva, around Ovalau and now I am in the North.

"When I return to Australia, I will bring some people together so we can work together for this initiative."

Apart from just walking, he said he had established a good relationship with the people he met along the road.

"For Fiji, it has been a wonderful experience as I have met people from various walks of life who offered their hospitality to me in a big way. Some offer me food or a place to stay in when night falls and others just welcome and greet me along the road with hospitable and friendly gestures.

"I also went to Taveuni and now I am completing my walk starting from Savusavu and around Wailevu West to Kubulau and then to Nabouwalu. I am also planning to visit Europe and the Southern American countries to walk there."

Mr Walking our World has requested people to check out his website on www.walkingourworld.org for his activities and latest news or simply follow him on Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram and Facebook.
