People often ask me why I travel. Why I travel by motorcycle. Why I travel alone. This wonderful five minute video from a couple traveling together through Chile and Patagonia captures the essence of the first question, at least. It's not credited well, but I will assume that it is Dan Riordan and Dana Saint of Gnarly Bay Productions. Lovely.
