We have been planning this next big trip for a long time! and have been saving up for even longer. NOW it is finally happening!!!! Amazing!!! These last few years I (Esben) have spend countless hour reading travels blogs, watching YouTube videos and daydreaming about traveling around the world. For some reason I always ended up on blogs about Central and South America (lots of those here on ADVrider.com Not that I have any special relationship with any of these countries. Never been there and don’t really know anyone who has. Slowly an idea formed……. A BIG IDEA…!!! This idea made us sell our apartment a few months ago and since we have been renting a room at a friends house. We have sold pretty much everything we own that could not be packet down on our parents attic. Everything of value is pretty much sold to fill our piggy bank. Our travel background We have been traveling a lot in north America. In all about 34.000 miles in USA and Canada, even did a trip from San Francisco to Alaska. All this we have done on our trusted DRZ’s and a tent so why not keep doing what really works for us. If you feel like it chack out our old RR here: advrider.com/index.php?threads/moose-and-mini-travels.483092/ Now We start in California. From there ride south until we cant go any further or get sick of talking Spanish (which we can't really speak anyways ) If the budget holds up and we still feel like staying on the road we will ship to Australia to see the big rock in the middle and fight some kangaroos. Again if we feel like it and there is still a few pennies on our bank account our dream is to ride the bikes home to Denmark. Eat some sushi in Asia, try not to hit any cows in India and ride across the vast empty areas of the “Stans” until we finally hit Europe again. It would be REALLY REALLY cool to cross the border on two wheels. So... Why the name Less Is More??? LessIsMore is an attempt to show that getting a traumatic brain injury should stop you from reaching your dreams. It should not hold you back from trying to better yourself or to reach goals that are important to you. It may be that the dreams you had before a is now not possible because of new lower limits, handicap or other obstacles. But it is important to find new reachable goals that can become just as important as the old ones. For me (Esben) my goals used to be that well paying job, a nice house and car… you know… the usual. Now things are changing. I rather strive to feel good, to have energy and live a healthy life, to not the to forget TRAVEL and gain new and exciting experiences To do this we need to make choices. Sometimes hard choices, to prioritize the most important things and people around us. To choose what recharges your “batteries”, what gives you joy and what you do out of duty and guilt.... what drains your energy. I truly believe that these choices are important for everyone to make in order to live a fulfilling life, but I also believe that the choices are even more important and sometimes harder to make if you have a handicap where some choices have been made for you. Back to the plan or lack there of……. In California we have some amazing friends (You know who you are) and we have been storing all our camping gear and old bikes close to a city called Placerville in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We bought 2 almost new DRZ400S motorcycles and then stole all the good parts from the old bikes. Stuff like luggage, large gas tanks, kickstart kit and other gadgets. This way we have two fully equipped bikes fairly cheap since we already have much of the stuff needed. Why a DRZ again? We know the bike, what tools and parts to carry, how to fix most things on the bike AND its pretty much the only dual sport model where we can ride the same model due to one of us having rather short legs Anyways…. we will head south to Mexico and the Baja peninsula and from there…. well…… we haven’t really planned that far but that is where our “bucket list map” comes in. Going to the mainland via the ferry from La Paz and then south again.. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. The bucket list map is our collections of destinations we have found interesting and would like to see all over the world. Its things that we have seen on TV, heard others talk about or read about online. All that have made the list and added to a google map. Many things on this map is about hiking. We LOVE hiking. So one of the things we are going to carry on our bikes is our hiking boots and our backpacks. We hope to be able to camp as much as possible. We really do love sleeping in our tent, cooking just outside and sitting around a campfire. Even though we wont say no to a warm bed and a shower.... Where do you come in? So we will take a look on the map, see where we want to ride to. We are in no rush and want to take our time to explore and really get a chance to experience the people and the culture. One of the things that are very important to us is to meet YOU.We really love to learn how YOU are living you life. From how you hang out at home or how you job is. You might think its just another day at work but for us its a whole new experience. So please show us, lets us be a part of your life for a few days in all its daily routines. We think we get so much more out of our stay in any location, when having a local guide to help us really experience and appreciate a new place. We would love to see your home, see your city and spend a little time playing tourist. We would love to share stories from our life and our travels, or show you how we live our lives in Denmark with our family and friends. So if you think we could end up near your place and you would like us to visit then please let us know. The more of you that follow out adventure the more fun it is for us to spend time (and it does take A LOT of time) to write updates to share pictures and stories. We will do our very best to keep this threat updated.
