Imagine spending six years travelling around the world on a motorcycle. Dream come true? It is for Sara and Daniel Pedersen, a couple from Port Moody, B.C., who organized the first 16 years of their life together so that they could one day embark on the trip of a lifetime.

“We decided in 1996 when we got married that we would do this sort of trip one day,” said Sara. “We worked hard and saved.”

By 2012, they were ready. Leaving secular pursuits behind, they hit the road—first on Canadian soil then international. As of December 2017, they have traversed 79 countries and logged more than 223,000 kilometres. 

Sara has been blogging about the trip on their website and the couple updates their followers regularly on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube.

 

Lovely Ancient Lijiang.

Their plan is to be back in North America by the summer of 2018 and home by September. But where, exactly, is home? When they left five years ago, the Pedersens sold everything, except for for a small piece of raw land in the interior of B.C. Sara didn’t say if they’d eventually be settling down or not, but one thing’s for certain: this is an adventure they won’t soon forget.
