    Pateel loves travelling and is currently on his way to Central America for the next leg of his trip around the world. But he follows a strange tradition wherever he travels — he does a headstand.

    He doesn't really care about attention from bystanders either.

    "It's a way for me to overcome my camera shyness and take pictures wherever I go. I wasn't into taking pictures before this and have no pictures from many trips," Pateel told BuzzFeed.

    "Headstands came naturally to me without any practice so it's kinda special enjoy doing them," he added.
