A Chinese citizen living in Russia has reportedly spent the past six months travelling by horseback to six different Russian cities hosting FIFA World Cup events, reports thepaper.cn.
Li Jing set out from the southern Russian Caucasus area, passing through six World Cup cities.
He intends to end his trip in the northern Russian city of Murmansk.
The 6,500-kilometer long trip isn't his first endeavor by horseback across Rursia.
Starting in Russia in 2007, Li travelled some 9,000 kilometers over the course of some two-years, finishing that trip in 2009.
"This is not just for fun, I see it as the meaning of life. I am allowing myself to take all the time I want to do this, because it's my dream, the most important dream in my life. And what is life? Life is dream," said Li.

Li Jing says he rides for about 10 hours each day. He says at each World Cup city, he says he made a stop at the local football pitch.
He expects to finish his ride in Murmansk by the end of October.
