In this article, we are going to narrate the story of Naresh Kumar, who won’t be forgotten.
Alireza Khodaei, CEO of DaricPay is going to narrate his experience with Naresh.
Naresh had introduced to DaricPay Travel Card by one of our partners,
1stQuest, and when we figured out his travel purpose we decided to give him the card as a gift.
What was his plan?
Naresh was cycling a double bicycle from Chennai (India) to Hamburg (Germany) to attend a cycling event, and his purpose of this action was to draw the attention of the international community to the issue of slavery and child labor, especially in Chennai where he was growing up in. He asked the people, who he faced in his journey, to join him cycling with his double bicycle.
Iran Was One of his Destinations!
Always tourists start their Iran trip from Tehran but Naresh entered Iran from Bandar Abbas, and because he had exchanged part of his budget before, he decided to receive an Iran Tourist Card and finally chose the DaricPay Travel Card and we deliver the card to him in Yazd. Although we were tracking his activities from his entrance, we got more information about him there in Yazd. We finally met him on a rainy day in Tehran.
After the lunch of that rainy day, we went to the India embassy and had a short visit with the Indian ambassador. Naresh told him about his activities and the ambassador gave us a gift.
The next day we went out together and got acquainted with each other more. Naresh talked about himself and I understand that he is also an ultra-marathon (which is longer than a marathon) professional.
One of the interesting stories to me was that his reason for migration to New Zealand. Since he was a fan of the Lord of the Rings, the Hollywood movie, he always wanted to live in a location in which the film was taken there, so he decided to move to New Zealand. As I like the movie, it was much tempting to me.
One of his hobbies on his trips was to taste spicy foods, so when we ordered fried eggs for breakfast he asked for fresh pepper. Thank god, he was satisfied with the spicy pepper.
We accompanied Naresh to Zanjan
After that day, he continued his trip and I was supposed to go to Zanjan. Since Zanjan was one of the cities he would pass, we decided to see each other there, too. During this time, I also followed up with his plan and activities.
The day we were in Zanjan we visited Zanjan’s attractions and had Kebab for lunch. When he was about to leave I cycled with him as the 100th companion.
Since he was going to some colder area, he needed to complete his pieces of equipment, so we went shopping and it was a new interesting experience for me.
Naresh had an Iran map which was for mementos from people who cycled with him. He had the map for all the countries he was about to cycle and had the plan to sell them for his campaign after collecting all the signatures.
Zanjan’s knife is famous and people buy it as a souvenir, I also bought him a knife. He later sent me some pictures in which he was using the knife. It was so pleasant to me to see that he liked his gift.
We had managed his accommodation in Tabriz, so when he saw a German cyclist there, he sent us a picture of her.
Kindness left Iran kindly
When he left Iran, it was the time of huge floods in Iran; he donated the leftover money of his account to flooded. After that, he went to Turkey, and we were still in touch. Until he arrived in Germany, Hamburg and finally his 90 days trip was done.
