Interview
Mr.MIC : Please introduce yourself.
I love this name very much because it is an ancient word of “journey” which means trip.
Besides this name has initial “J and W” in my Korean name “Jeong-Won”. I love traveling and bicycle trip is one of my favorite.
I am Stacey, wife of Jowrney.
People who were born in the year of the Horse tends to have itchy feet. So I do like to travel. I usually take a role in supporting Jowrney who is a man with initiative and drive of big dream in our life. So our couple are always in a great happiness and joy.
Mr.MIC : What did you do before?
I have worked in IT(Information Technology) industry for 13 years.
By designing and developing that the two have different properties respectively logo design, flash motion graphic, action script, UI/UX design, smart phone application, etc I came up with a possibility of conversion between the two and our dream. Finally the thought drove me to take more clear picture of Around the World Travel project.
I have worked in overseas trade for 14 years.
My job is a sourcing and supply activities related to fashion and food ingredient(fruit juice concentrate and aroma) By communicating with many foreign countries, naturally I got used to global business English. The work experience of food industry make me more interested in good food for human and being a farmer. Our first step for this dream is to take a long journey of Around the World Travel based on agriculture.
Mr.MIC : Please introduce your detailed project of world around travel.
Both of us were born in rural area and think that we will migrate from urban to rural areas some day. However not a mere migration but the life which dedicate to development of Korean agriculture industry will be much meaningful. In order to do that, we need to experience a variety of culture and farming in each countries. So called “Ride Today, Plant tomorrow”. This means the 2 steps of our life ; the first step is “Around the World Travel” project and the second step is “Urban to Rural Migration”. Please click the following URL for more details.
Mr.MIC : Why do you take the theme of farming?
When did we begin to doubt ourselves?
There are many social issues like suspicious food, speculation in house, money is everything, disadvantage is more important than injustice. Several decades ago, there was a sign that increasing population will cause a shortage of food. Fortunately, human overcame the crisis by Green Revolution, plant breeding and chemical fertilizer, in late 1960’. However10 billions of people still starve to death. It doesn’t make sense because food production is enough to feed people all around the world. Something wrong ! We decided to serve a good food to the people and in order to do that our direct experience on different types of farm in the world around is necessary. And we will share the useful experience to the people who has a same value.
Mr.MIC : Why you choose bike of all of transportation?
We have been traveling by bike for 8 years. The longest distance by bike per day is same as the distance by car for 1 hour. Faster than walking, loading available many pieces of luggage, bike is so attractive. We will see many farm when we travel. If we go by car, we will miss many small important things. Soil, wind, sweat and people who work in a picturesque scenery… Isn’t it so wonderful that I can feel all of these things on the bike riding myself?
Mr.MIC : Please introduce your bike which his specially equipped for long-term travel.
For a long-term trip, we considered that to secure durability is absolutely important. Even a small part of bike should be easily replaceable in any place we are. The touring bike may be compared to a truck. In fact, we load many pieces of baggage on the bike so a punctured tire, damage, wear and tear, of parts are frequent. For detailed information about our bike, please visit our website “Introduction of FlyBasket > Gear & Items.
Mr.MIC : How will you afford your traveling expenses?
In order to estimate a total budget, we need to figure out the bike riding distance and got to know that it is approximate 800 days. Based on this and also a standard expense per continent (traveller who spend only $5 everyday - travellercafe.daum), it costs $32,000 per person. Including air fare and all general expenses, we need about $ 100,000. Our plan is to afford the total expense from the savings, works during the journey and sponsorship. Many thanks for your support :D
Mr.MIC : Preparing the traveling, what were your difficulties?
It was a long, hard fight with ourselves.
Because we have to say goodbye to all of social network, stable life and family. As the life on the road is so tough, we struggled with temptation on current city life even until a final decision. Like our motto “Today is a present”, we keep preparing and going ahead to the long journey.
Mr.MIC : What is your message to your friends who visit this website?
The people who visit his website may also love to travel. Some has a world trip plan, and some are already on the journey. Our couple also greatly impressed with some of other traveler’s website and encouraged to keep concentrating on our original plan. We will be helped by so many people during the travel and must return the debt to somebody else whatever it is. Thank you for putting heart and a great cheers into us :D
