Since the beginning of this year I have been selected as a Jupiters Traveller by the Ted Simon foundation:
Jupiter’s Travellers are people who seek to understand the beauties, mysteries and tragedies of our world, and their place in it, through personal adventure. They are inspired and motivated to develop their observations and insights into something of value for the rest of the world to share, whatever their medium of expression might be.
For me, being a Jupiters Traveller means inspiring people to live their dream and go out in the world and see things for themselves. I hope to archive this with this blog and my books. During our journey I was often asked by other women about riding my own bike and how I went about the trip.
Now that our world trip is over and its story is told (and we are looking at settling for a little while in Berlin) I want to spread the experiences of other female motorcycle overland travelers. I’m thinking about a series of guest posts by women riders (solo or with partner) to draw attention to just how many women are following their dreams and riding their own bikes around the world (or to Mongolia and back, or three months through the middle east, etc!).
In the process hopefully more women will follow through on their dream to ride and perhaps you will find a new blog to follow.
You are a female motorcycle overland traveller? You have an interesting story to tell? You want to inspire other travellers? This is your chance. Please drop us an email or leave a comment, we have a series of questions that we would send you to fill out, and of course links, pictures, etc. are welcome!
Thanks and safe travels!
