In 2001 Merv and Ruth Homer started out on a motorcycle adventure, which took them through 32 countries over a period of 2 years.

They had planned an overland route from the UK to Malaysia and then from Canada to Chile. These plans soon changed when war and civil unrest broke out along the way. Undeterred, they went through the Middle East shortly after 9/11 and entered Nepal when it was in a State of Emergency.

To raise money for the trip they sold their house, in the UK, bought a shaft-drive motorcycle and necessary equipment.

The epic 43,000-mile journey took them through France, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, India, Nepal, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, Andorra and Germany.

It was incredibly difficult leaving behind all their friends and family - but it was a journey they needed to do as they struggled to come to terms with the loss of their youngest daughter.

A motorcycle was the perfect vehicle for the adventure. Allowing them to travel where they wanted, when they wanted. From the remote rain forest regions to the centre of the Atacama desert - where it hardly ever rains - the driest desert on earth.
