Apart from his passion to travel the world, he is also rowing to help raise funds for a charity foundation for orphanages. Bardelis' passion and love to help others motivated him to row and raise funds to help orphanages with the theme "row together, grow together".
Last year he started rowing across the Pacific, aiming to travel to Asia.
Having travelled up to 8000 miles, Bardelis has spent 10 months in the rowing boat while another 3 months was used for stops he made on small islands to rest.
For every kilometre he rows, $7 goes to the charity.
