Meet intrepid backpacker Tony Giles who has visited 125 countries around the world on his own - despite being BLIND and DEAF.

Daredevil Tony, 39, lost his vision at the age of 10 but learned to travel solo while commuting to his special school as a teenager.

He then set himself the target of visiting every country in the world because it was "the biggest challenge possible for a blind person".
