The year of the Snake is winding down and the year of the Horse is dawning upon us. In China, this means the beginning of the annual "Spring Festival Rush" known as "Chun Yun," where millions upon millions of Chinese travel home to celebrate the lunar new year with their families.
While the rest of the country is scrambling and moving about China on trains and planes, five Chinese gamers went on a 12-day journey from Southern China to North Eastern China, on a route spanning over 1,400 miles (close to 2,300 kilometers).
As reported by CCTV, five Chinese gamers decided that this year, instead of taking regular transportation to return home for the spring festival, they would walk from Guangzhou, Guangdong to Ji'nan, Shandong. Forgoing the normal super crowded nature of traveling during a holiday in China, the quintet led by Mai Gufeng traveled on foot, using mobile devices to navigate.
