    You’ve probably heard of Neale Bayly. Born in England and currently residing in Charlotte, NC, Neale has made a career in motorcycle adventure and journalism that has enabled him to travel to over 80 countries, 50 of them on a motorcycle. Neale was co-host of the popular show Trippin on Two Wheels, and he also produced and hosted his show called “Neale Bayly Rides,” both featured on the now defunct Speed Channel. On Nealy Bayly, Rides turned an unlikely group of riders from off-road novices to full-fledged Adventure riders as they rode to the Hogar Belen orphanage in Peru.
    Neale first learned of the orphanage while riding through Peru in 1995, when he met Father Giovanni, its founder; Neale went on to establish Wellspring International Outreach to raise money for the orphanage’s children.

    In this episode of the Journeys With WorldRider Podcast, Allan Karl WorldRider interviews Tom Miller, the legendary, best-selling travel writer and author of “The Panama Hat Trail,” which National Geographic calls “among the best travel books ever written.” Enjoy this casual conversation where we discuss his latest book, a memoir titled “Where Am I?” where he reflects on a life of travel and writing. In addition, we talk about his bout with Parkinson’s disease, his travels, spies, borders, gun-toting priests, and so much more.
    Tom Miller started his writing and journalist career from the “underground” in the late 1960’s writing for the anti-war press. Eventually, he moved above ground, writing for sea-level publications such as Smithsonian, Rolling Stone, Esquire, The Chicago Quarterly Review, The New Yorker, LIFE, and many others.
    His books include “The Panama Hat Trail,” about South America; “On the Border,” an account of his travels along the U.S.-Mexico frontier; “Revenge of the Saguaro,” about the American Southwest; and about Cuba, “Trading with the Enemy.”
    Tom has been a member of the Thornton Wilder Society and the Cervantes Society of America and served as a Fellow of the Gilder Lehrman Institute for American History.
    The Ecuadorian capital City of Quito designated Miller “Un Huésped Illustre,” and he was honored by the Castilla-La Mancha Regional Consejería de Cultura, Turismo y Artesanía in Spain. In 2017 he was honored with a Festschrift. Since 1990 he has served as an Adjunct Research Associate of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Arizona.

They have a reputation never to follow or believe their own advice. However, they love to share stories, inspiration, and lessons from their ten-year-long motorcycle journey. They left South Africa 10 years ago on what was supposed to be a well-planned six-month trip to Europe through Africa. However, motorcycle travel seduced them, and they soon were addicted to life on the road. They had no choice but to continue. Throwing caution to the wind, they sold the family pets and their mom and hit the road. Since then, they’ve been motorcycling on a semi-permanent basis to this day. They are currently tightly locked down in Sucre, Bolivia, with their two DR650s wondering just when they can make a move. ​​​​​​​
    No matter what, they say, “If the bones, wealth, and health last, we can continue motorbiking and explore more of this wonderful rock we live on.” ​​​​​​​

A first rate Travelogue

I first became acquainted with Mr. Karl's Podcasts through a mutual friend. Since that they have became a pleasant part of my morning routine. Just riding around the world on a motorcycle is interesting enough, but Mr. Karl's vivid word pictures of the locales he visits and his experiences on the road make this podcast worth coming back to again and again,
