Who is behind MotoTravel?

MotoTravel is created by Arnan de Gans. I have several years of experience with motorbike adventures – Big or small.
I have ridden more than 80000km in countries like the Philippines and Mexico. Other than motorcycles I’ve travelled all over Europe by bus, train and airplane.

To give you an idea of what kind of rides we enjoy and provide on this website – We don’t particular enjoy the excessive luxury tourism or the party scene you’ll find in places like Cancun (mx) or Boracay (ph). Arnan is much more at home on a twisting mountain road and sleeping in basic affordable hotels and to experience an adventure most others will never have. Jeanette likes quieter roads, scenic views and the beach and enjoys riding to such places. We take photos of scenic spots in places where tourism doesn’t exist, and would rather drive 3 hours through the mountains or a desert away from civilization to find a little restaurant at a bay than immerse ourselves into luxury tourism found in places like Tulum, Puerto Vallarta or Boracay…

Joining me on most adventures is Jeanette. She, like me, likes to explore all kinds of places and do ‘unconventional tourism’ and as a result see what the country is really about. You can check out her websites here and here.

The routes on this website are rides we’ve done or planned to do. Both as our adventure but also to explore new and exciting routes through countries to see more of it. Some routes are made up as we went along, others took several weeks of planning and deliberation. All tracks and routes that are available on MotoTravel have been carefully prepared for you to experience and enjoy as well.
