Woman trying to be the first woman in Spain to circumnavigate the world on a motorcycle.
There is a Spanish woman called Alicia Sornosa who is trying to go around the world by motorcycle, if she achieves her goal she will be the first Spanish woman to do it. She says it is an experience that can’t be described with words. Alicia started her adventure in Madrid in September 2011, she has travelled more than 44 thousand km in five continents and she will finish her journey in Patagonia travelling from North to South America. The most difficult continent to ride through with a motorbike is Africa because its road network is not good enough and there are no signals, no lines and no hard shoulders. She talks about the beauty of Kenya’s landscapes and she says that the African people are the most generous and hospitable people in the world and they offer visitors some of their food even though they don’t have enough food for themselves.
The most chaotic country to ride through is India, the lights are off and cows graze at ease. She considers the “Great Ocean Road” in Australia one of the most beautiful roads in the world to ride with a motorcycle. In the United States she enjoyed the famous Route 66, it was like a roller coaster for her because there were many elevation changes.
Her journey will take almost a year and a half to complete. She is now in North America. She has completed most of her journey and we encourage and support her to complete the rest of this great adventure.
Good luck Alicia.
