The purpose of this 7 months journey is to discover several countries and to meet the people along the road. Discovering landscapes, environment, customs and traditions of the people we will meet.
The initiator of the project. The hair in autumn !
He gave 25 years of his active life to aviation as a captain. Then becoming documentary filmmaker.
Based in Indonesia for more than 20 years, he travels the world (122 countries where he set foot) by making documentaries. While being independent, he collaborates with various TV channels including National Geographic.
To his credit more than 150,000 kms of adventure-tours on different motorbikes in both Africa and Asia. He had a lot of trouble getting rid of his loyal Yamaha 500 XT for new models :-)
His philosophy: "The Stranger is the Friend that we do not know yet !"
The conversation begins ...
Barbara: "Great your project, I don't dare asking you to go with you ..."
Alain: "So don't ask and come ..."
Ten days later Barbara had her new motorcycle.
The youngest of the adventure, hair in summer, has always traveled the world with her camera as a faithful travel companion.
Sailing, motorcycle, on foot, Elsewhere is its engine, the Discovery of the Other its fuel.
A chance meeting in her mosaic workshop, at an unlikely moment, offered an opportunity for this artist to combine her passion for travel and her artistic vision, in order to offer us a new mosaic made of the diversity of peoples and cultures through of the 26 countries they will cross during this long journey.
