CLEMENT Leroy doesn’t sing for his supper, instead he busks for a bed.
The 26-year-old Frenchman is travelling around Australia in a very unique fashion.
Armed with a set of juggling balls and his bike, every afternoon he knocks on doors in search of a bed for the night.
He spent the weekend in the south-west after winning a world championship at a cycling competition in Melbourne.
After completing his university degree in cognitive psychology, Mr Leroy decided he wanted to get to know his country and his fellow Frenchmen.
Every day he travelled wherever he felt like exploring and when it came to 5pm, he would stop and knock on people’s doors.
In exchange for a bed for the night, he would put on a bike show with juggling.
He is travelling around Australia in the same fashion as he did in France.
“I love travelling and I love meeting local people along the way,” he said.
“I drive wherever I want and then knock on doors and offer a juggling show for a bed.”
Mr Leroy said he can’t wait to get to Alice Springs and Katherine.
“I really love Australia,” he said.
“Life is good and this is a very safe country.”
Out of more than 100 days in France and Australia, Mr Leroy has only twice not been able to find someone to give him a bed.
