While I was in London I was able to sit down with photojournalist and fellow Adorama TV host, Doug McKinlay, to talk about our different travel experiences.
The No-Go Boat and The Rush SouthI stayed in Guatemala City for a couple of days. I needed to get the bike serviced, get a bit of rest, and spend some time on-line trying to catch up on work. After a few emails back and forth I was given official word that the ship leaving May 9th would not work out. The ship already had two motorcycles booked and had no room for a third bike.
Why The Rush?After spending a few weeks in Mexico (and loving it) I realized I needed to pick up the pace. The issue was an 80 mile no-man’s land called the Darien Gap. There is no road from North America to South America, the Pan-American highway ends abruptly in southern Panama. There are only two ways from Panama to Colombia; fly or sail.
Last weekend I was in New York City talking about my travels. Watch this rebroadcast as I talk about why I travel, how I believe we can change the world through art, and some tips for better travel photography. There’s a ton of good information in this talk. Grab some coffee and enjoy the show.
