AMMONNEWS - “Issac the traveler” as he is known on social media has so far walked almost 6,000 km and has now reached Kuwait. But the Spanish traveler of Algerian descent has about 1,356 km to go to reach the holy city of Makkah to perform Umrah.

Umrah is a non-mandatory lesser pilgrimage made by Muslims to Makkah, which may be performed at any time of the year.

From Paris - Issac’s starting point - the traveler took five months to reach Kuwait, passing through 16 countries.

The only device he has with him to help him reach the goal is simply a baby stroller which he uses to store his belongings.

Issac informed Saudi social media users that the trip is solely funded by him and not from any outside source.

He is now waiting for his visa to finally enter Saudi Arabia.
