Welcome to viajarMOTO. We are Travis and Chantil – a couple who decided to take a mid-life sabbatical and travel as much of the world as we can via motorcycles. Join us as we share videos, blog posts, and photographs of our adventures as we explore this “pale blue dot” we call home.
Why viajarMOTO? The very first country we explored, outside of the United States, was Baja Mexico. In honor of this country, and its language, we decided to use the Spanish verb “viajar” which means to travel. “MOTO” is short for our beloved motorcycles.
