The destination is just as important as the journey itself. An exciting journey on the back of a means of locomotion as fragile as a motorcycle with which to conquer ten thousand kilometers of asphalt and dirt roads. Miquel Silvestre crosses the Pyrenees, the Alps, the Dalmatian coast and the Balkans or the beautiful Bosphorus Strait until he reaches the former Soviet Union and offers us his particular look at the landscapes, people and culture of one of the most diverse and captivating regions of our planet.
Miquel Silvestre is a traveler and writer. He worked in an office, but one day he abandoned his tie to make his dream of adventure, exploration and books come true. He chose to live badly, and since then he has been a nomad.
Travel by motorcycle because it is one of the last remaining authentic experiences. Lightly packed and in a bare-bones, epic vehicle. On two wheels you suffer and enjoy, the constant trickle of emotions transforms you. Drive slowly and without haste, to watch, learn and mingle with people. To find stories.
« I was in my recently opened home as a sedentary man reviewing memories when I came across this photograph from 2009. The picture made me relive the intense days of those first adventures, so intimate, so real, so unrepeatable. I looked into the eyes of the man I had been and said to myself: What the hell! Why don't we do it again? »
