For anyone who has visited the bustling cities of Thailand, Cambodia and other Southeast Asian countries, they’ll know that the simple matter of crossing the street can become a terrifying ordeal.
The semi-organised chaos that is the Asian traffic system means that foreign pedestrians can genuinely fear for their lives when trying to cross over – and there are no zebra crossings in sight.
Now imagine tackling such a feat on a skateboard… with no limbs.
World traveller Chris Koch has toured the far corners of the globe despite the fact that he has no arms and legs, providing inspiration to everyone he comes into contact with.
One such chance encounter with photographer Anne Tenne, who attended a motivational talk which Koch gave in her native Australia, led to the journey around Southeast Asia.
Taking in the nations of Thailand, Nepal and Cambodia, the pair visited Angkor Wat, swapped stories with locals and even hiked part of the way to Everest Base Camp.
Koch provides inspirational speeches for the organisation ‘If I Can’.
