The 11-year journey has taken him across 64 countries in six continents and became more than a remedy for his midlife doldrums; his more-than-casual stroll inevitably caught attention, and he used it to promote world peace, according to his website. He did this in conjunction with UNESCO and their proclamation that 2001-2010 was to be the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World."
Béliveau packed light and carried all his necessities in a three-wheeled stroller: food, some clothes, a first aid kit, a small tent, and a sleeping bag. Whenever he was tired, he slept; whenever he was hungry, he ate. But he wasn't alone the entire time; his supporting wife Luce met him for a bit every year on the road to walk with him. Each year was a "new honeymoon" as they reunited in New Orleans, Ecuador, Chile, Malawi, Egypt, Spain, Turkey, Nepal, Taiwan, and Australia.
