Asquith got the travel bug after his visit to war-torn Egypt and said that he went to Libya three weeks after Muammar Gaddafi fell and Afghanistan two weeks after the terrorist bombings in Mazar-i-Sharif.

He said that he always managed to find a local to show him around and get an insight into each country.

Asquith has spent six months in Africa, starting his journey from Senegal.

He said that his travel has cost him 125,000 pounds, which he was funded through university holiday jobs and working in bars and hostels.

The young traveler added that he still hasn't finish as yet, as he was still left with Antarctica to see.
