Today I was at an event with my father. It was an audiovisual presentation at a city near my parents home.
It was about an Austrian guy, that drives through his world on his motorcycle. Most of the time with his wife on the backseat.
This time he presented his trip through Africa. Astounding 5 months and 22000 kilometres on a motorcycle. He and his wife take pictures and videos on the way, which he presents later to interested audiences.
He took outstanding pictures on his trip through Africa and the two hours were gone in what felt like minutes.
They don't have a supporting crew or following vehicles. Just both of them, the motorcycle and a tent. He didn't say how they are charging the drone or the stuff for the camera. I think they are charging all of this while driving. The bike has an onboard 12 Volt system, why not use it?
But that other fact that was even more interesting for me, is the fact that they don't brink any food on their trips. They always eat with locals in the area they're in. Not only are you eating a large variety of different foods, but also you get an insight into the lifestyle of the people.
Another thing I can't get out of my head, they only have two large containers on either side of the bike. How many socks and underwear have do they have?
