Each year millions of Muslims make the annual pilgrimage to the Saudi city of Mecca.
The Hajj, as it is known, is still far away, this year it is in the end of October, but 47-year-old Senad Hadzic has already set off in that direction.
That is because he is on foot.
He started from his hometown in northern Bosnia back in December 2011 and is walking all the way to Mecca.
The distance is about 3,600 miles from Bosnia to Mecca and he covers between 12 to 20 miles a day.
What a wonderful story. However, I don't think this pilgrim is going to Saudi since the Prophet didn't live there. It was called and is still Arabia. the British named it for ibn Saud's ego.
