Default Alex Chacon - Around the World in 360° Degrees

Alex Chacon - Around the World in 360° Degrees-alex.jpg

Around the World in 360° Degrees - 3 Year Epic Selfie.

This unique travelogue video is creating lot of interest in the net, and prompted to check a little further.
More fascinating is the real life story of its creator Alex Chacón and that is exactly the reason behind putting this in front of similar minded people over here.

Alex Chacón is an adventure rider, public speaker, professional photographer, videographer and presenter. He endeavored to work directly with the less fortunate children of the world in each of the 22+ Latin American countries he visited.


A medical student by profession, he initially sold everything he had at the beginning of his journey and departed his hometown of El Paso Texas with nothing to return to, living only out of his motorcycle for the next 3 years.
These years were spent engaging in the most epic of adventures, riding in over 36+ countries, driving over 200,000+ km and crossing over 75+borders around the world, discovering the most unique places and people on earth!

Despite facing ultimate odds, he was continuously raising funds internationally for charity from sponsors and individuals following the journey online.

This is the video that had been mentioned as the title for the thread;


Thank you for the effort in capturing the art, magic and fun in such journeys. For those with a heart that sings 'Live To Drive', people like you are truly inspirational!
