Jean Beliveau was not a happy man.
He needed a change.
On August 18, 2000, Jean tied his shoes and said good-bye.
It was his 45th birthday.
Jean decided to walk around the world for peace.
And he walked, for 11 years.
He travelled 75,000 kilometres and through 64 countries.
Jean slept in jails, in deserts, on mountains and under bridges.
He lived with 1,500 families.
