“Allan Karl is one of those people. After hitting a rut in his day to day life, he packed up his motorcycle and rode for three years. Through 35 countries, countless villages and priceless new relationships, Allan Karl did what most of us have only ever dreamt of, he traveled the world and he did it all on the back of his motorcycle with nothing but his camera to keep him company. But the surprising thing that he found is that, no matter where you are, you are never really alone. From mile to mile, Allan created new adventures and new friendships.” — Ashley Benson
