Two years ago, Edwin Shackleton was watching TV. There was a documentary about a man who had travelled from Ireland to Austria using 100 different means of transport. Edwin was fascinated by this and he decided to try something similar. Now, two years later, Edwin has tried more than 200 different means of transport and has entered the record books. He has even tried some exotic means of transport, like a hot air balloon and a rickshaw. Now he’s trying to decide what to do next. His enthusiasm is unbelievable because he is over 80 years old!

You can see hot air balloons and rickshaws in the video.
