If the latter seems like a rather audacious plan, imagine travelling as a couple - which is exactly what Marta and Lukas are doing as we speak.
The former IT’ers left Poland at the beginning of June 2018, and have been travelling together ever since. By the beginning of September, they had already covered 13.000 km in 14 countries.
But they’ve not nearly reached their goal yet: they want to reach New-Zealand by September 2019. According to their website, there’s no real reason for that destination: the idea just popped up and they went for it.
After all, if you want to travel the world, it doesn’t really matter which way you go first, right?
Lukas isn’t a rookie by any means: he started riding in 2007 and has ever since left on a trip from Poland to Brazil, riding a Yamaha XT 660Z Ténéré.
Although Marta didn’t like to see her boyfriend leave for six months while being stuck in Poland to study, the trip did plant the seed which led to their world travelling plans: she went to see Lukas when he arrived in Brazil, and rode along as a pillion, and realized two things.
Firstly, she saw how wonderful it is to explore the world from the motorcycle seat, and secondly, she wanted to see the same things from her own motorcycle seat.
Not one of the faint of heart, she wanted to ride her own motorcycle and fight her own battles with muscle pain, fatigue and herself.
While Marta’s picked a fairly light Honda CRF 250 L for both asphalted and gravel roads, her more experienced hubby went for German engineering: a BMW F 800 GS Adventure. They’ve currently made it to Sumatra, Indonesia, and are still going strong!
