Motorcycle Diaries - Most Popular Posts

Greetings Community!

First off I wanted to thank everyone so far for the great and amazing support on this journey, I've achieved more, received more generosity, and have had more of an experience than I ever could have imagined.

I wanted to thank everyone who have been a part of this journey since the beginning. I'm incredibly happy to see so many people following this adventure. Recently a total of 20,000 people have visited this blog and it only continues to grow. So thanks to everyone for adding to that growing number and support.

I want to welcome the new visitors to the blog, I hope you enjoy. I invite you to learn why I'm driving half way around the world by clicking here- About this Adventure

Be sure to learn more about the amazing Foundation Los Ojos de Dios, to which this journey is helping promote and raise money for.

I also wanted to thank my sponsors for all their help. Make sure to see who they are- Click Here for Official Sponsors

A special thanks to my family for the encouragement, and putting up with me and my adventurous nature and personality and this epic journey. I know it must be difficult knowing your child is out there in the middle of the world surviving, meeting the world, opening their eyes to everything, and doing some pretty crazy things. In return its equally as challenging dealing with having your parents telling you every day to come back home already and not to do risky adventurous things. Regardless, love to the family.

So I am currently in Manaus brazil

Right in the heart of the Amazon. I'll be heading into the jungle for some days, followed by a long boat ride to Colombia. So I will be out of contact for quite some time.

So I wanted to leave a post with the most popular posts to keep everyone busy and happy until I get back to civilization.

I hope people will reminice in some of the best views and times of the journey, enjoy videos, catch up if you missed anything. As well I hope you enjoy all the suffering, funny and random moments and anything else you'd like.

Remember that all the videos are up on my YouTube Channel

  1. The Motorcycle Diaries is a transformative cinematic journey that beautifully captures the essence of self-discovery and the spirit of adventure. This poignant film, directed by Walter Salles, masterfully chronicles the young Ernesto 'Che' Guevara's transformative motorcycle expedition across South America. Gael García Bernal's portrayal of Che is both compelling and sincere, drawing viewers into the soul-stirring exploration of social injustice and the birth of a revolutionary spirit. The breathtaking landscapes and the intimate storytelling create a powerful narrative that transcends political ideologies, resonating with the universal quest for purpose and compassion. The Motorcycle Diaries is a testament to the profound impact of travel, friendship, and empathy, inspiring audiences to reflect on their own journey and the possibility of positive change in the world.
