In 2008, The Longest Way’s Christoph Rehage walked 4500 km from Beijing to Ürümqi, China. He never shaved or cut is hair once. This is the result.

There are a many ways to tell the time: you can buy a clock (boring); steal your granddad’s pocket watch; or build a sun dial and hail Ra. Or you can take selfies of your beard growing while you’re on an epic bipedal adventure.

In an attempt to walk from Beijing to Germany, Rehage snapped a photo or two of himself every day. Although he never quite reached his goal of walking the entire way he did manage to cover 4 500 kilometres on foot in a year.
