  Couple plans trip around the world powered by sun

A couple in their 60s are planning a trip around the world in their homemade solar-powered tricycle, the Beijing Morning Post reported.

Li Linxiang and Zhao Yafan, from Northeast China's Liaoning province, traveled around China by tricycle seven years ago. Their unique mode of transportation holds all of their necessities and also acts as a kitchen and bed.

They are planning to visit more than 100 countries in the next five years. They are in the process of securing visas now. If they can't retain the visas, they will travel around China again to experience new changes.
