Refugee starts new life after hazardous 90-day trek

Adnan's three-month journey from the bombed-out wreckage of Aleppo to Paris took him on a treacherous voyage by sea, foot, lorries and trains in search of safety.

Adnan had had enough of the brutal civil war in Syria and crossed the porous border into Turkey.

"I paid 1,000 euros ($1,100) to get to Greece. We left around midnight on a 15-meter motorboat with 32 passengers, including two children and a pregnant woman," said Adnan, using a false name for fear of repercussions.
