WASHINGTON, 6 June (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 6th Jun, 2021 ) :- Erden Eruc, the holder of 15 Guinness world records, hopes to be the first person in history to row across the Pacific Ocean, from North America to Asia.
- 'Life is short' Eruc recounted that he later returned to the town of Bodega Bay in California to complete his circumnavigation attempt.
The 59-year-old said that after the loss of his close friend Goran Kropp, who fell while rock climbing together in September 2002, he told himself that "life is short.""On the plane returning from Kropp's funeral, I drew a map of the world, marking the highest peak on each of the six continents. I told myself that I'd go to these peaks by muscle power as he climbed Everest," he said.
