A biker’s journey is never ending. #mototravel

For me, it’s never been an “around the world” trip and I hope that this post will help to explain the mentality that I carry.
There was never a firm plan to simply circumnavigate the planet with any resemblance of organization or efficiency. Or, to do it within a certain timeframe.
Don’t get me wrong, just like we should all feel, I want to cram as much happiness into this life as I can before my (our) clock runs out.
If that means circling the world once, twice… three times: fantastic.
If it means getting distracted by a few too many pints of Guinness and resulting in a few too many nights in a little, dark, smoky pub, heated by a peat-burning stove on Achille Island in Ireland; that’s fine too.
Or maybe, your camera and lenses are literally disintegrating with each bump in the road and you have to park in the mountains for a few months to operate snowcats so that you can afford to replace it.
I’m not naïve to the fact that not everybody can quit their job and leave responsibility behind. You’ll never catch me belittling another traveler based on the scale or duration of their trip. Whether it’s a day trip, in between overtime shifts, or a 15 year journey, do it it your way.
Point yourself in the direction you want to go... and go.
While suggestions are great, the populations of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter don’t get to dictate your path.
