I really enjoyed this movie because it’s a story of a guy that was cheated on and decides, screw it…i’m going to travel. I enjoy the mentality the main character has as he makes a spontaneous decision to join a group of adventurers on a very dangerous journey. That’s what it’s all about. Taking risks and trying something new!

The Motorcycle Diaries, a story about Che Guevara and how he decided to travel via motorcycle and discover his life calling. Not only did this movie make me want to learn more about Che Guevara, but it also inspired me to take more chances and risks when traveling. Not only does he get sick, starves, and has numerous accounts where he could have died..he continues with high hopes and an open mind.Through travel, he finds that he becomes more connected to humanity than he ever was.

Tv series called ‘Long Way Round’ where Ewan McGreggor and Charley Boorman decide to take a several month trip around the world on their motorcycles. Not only did it appeal to me because…well it’s an amazing journey, but the fact it was done on a motorcycle adds another bit of excitement. Immediately after watching the show, I found myself looking up sport touring or enduro style motorcycles.
It’s also fascinating to see all the trouble they get into (which is expected) and all the people they meet along the way.
If you love travel and excitement, I’d definitely recommend watching this show!
