With a brief interruption, I’ve been on the road for seven years now. Starting out in Peru in 2013 on a small Chinese motorcycle, I’ve since moved on to a Suzuki DR65o named Lucy, crossed three continents, and raced two roadbook navigation rallies. When I think back to my favorite travel moments, however, those that stand out the most are in a way mundane – like getting your bike across a small stretch of sea and onto Tierra del Fuego – and in a way, unforgettable, because it’s impossible to repeat them – like chasing Rally Dakar.

Here’s a collection of my favorite photos and travel moments from my years living off the motorcycle:

  1. Traversing the Lagunas Route in Bolivia

Me and my tiny 150cc motorbike against the vast high desert of the Bolivian Altiplano.

2. A Ferry to the Land of Fire

I never planned to ride to Ushuaia but, when I crossed the invisible border to Patagonia, I knew I had to set foot and tire on Tierra del Fuego.

Surviving the Hellas Rally Raid 2019 as a competitor, even though I only barely made it across the finish line, still feels like my own private victory.

5. Leading a Motorcycle Tour in Ecuador

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined I would one day lead a motorcycle tour – yet, here I was, leading a group of riders in Ecuador this winter.

6. Finishing Rally Hispania

Lucy had to sit this one out, but finishing Rally Hispania on a borrowed KTM450 felt like the best way to open the riding season in Europe.
