Andy and Alissa have spent the past 19 years experiencing adventure at every turn. They have hiked, backpacked, and travelled by vehicle and motorcycle, but it has always left them yearning for more. To fulfill their desire for adventure, they decided to embark on a journey to ride around the world by motorcycle, to travel with no end date. After five years of saving, they set out on a cold and stormy day, a true test of their stamina. It was an experience that may have caused many riders to turn back and reevaluate, but they persevered through a stressful first few days of riding and numerous challenges. They had set out to experience the world and they weren’t going to give up that easily.
