However, he came across a little hitch, as his visa got expired a day ago while he was in Russia. The authorities detained him at the  Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk airport and were about to send him back to Japan, his previous stop, where he could not go as he had entered Japan on a single-entry visa.

Fakhar-e-Alam kickstarted his journey on October 10, with Clearwater Florida being his starting point. From there, he flew to Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Croatia, Japan, Australia, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.
