We all wish to travel around the world, but how many of us actually give away all your stuff and motorcycle around the world for 3 years? Well, Alex Chacon did, he documents everything with photo and video on his site modernmotodiaries, he also recorded an epic selfie-videos all along the way. It has gone viral in the internet.
“I just wanted to go places and conquer lands no man had conquered before,” Chacon shared. “In one place, I met locals that had never seen tourists in six generations of people.”
Sure this project costs money, and this may be the main reason why we don’t take off like he did, but Chacon has saved a lot by camping, and he also says he relied on the kindness of strangers he met on the way who would share food and house him. After all, you can’t expect traveling around with a limited budget, and still get to stay in a fancy hotel. Maybe it is not because we don’t have time and money to travel the world, maybe it’s because we lack of the courage, and because we are afraid of the trouble and the pain.
Here is a collection of Alex’s wonderful journey, enjoy them!
