One couple’s journey 
From Sydney to New York

without a plane


Amelia and Steve here. Welcome to MotoLife Diaries.

We fell in love, sold everything we owned and set off on an adventure of a lifetime around the planet by motorbike and boat!

Join us as we hunt down the most extraordinary people and experiences, test our relationship against the world and search for the secret to a happy life.

"Life is either a daring adventure

or nothing at all"

- Helen Keller

Starting from beautiful Bondi Beach we hit the dirt and take an unconventional route via 21 countries on some seriously unchartered terrain around the Pacific Rim on one motorbike and over 15 boats.

From Australia through South-East Asia, Eastern China and right up to Far Eastern Russia we will jump a boat to Alaska, nip up to the Arctic Ocean before zipping across to New York. NEVER FLYING A PLANE!

We reckon that if we survive this trip, we will have woven a fabric of memories that will last a lifetime, and created an environment for our future kids to be the best version of themselves.

Parents in training...


We left our 9 to 5 jobs, downsized from a house to a motorbike, and are currently travelling by land and sea through 21 countries, hunting down the world’s most inspiring humans.

Dear Future Kids

We are gearing up to have kids one day soon and we want to show them (not just tell them) that life is one big adventure, that anything is possible and most importantly, that their parents used to be totally badass.

The world is changing. Maybe our kids will never get to see the brightly coloured coral of the Pacific Ocean, or marvel at the ice capped mountains in Canada, or visit remote villages in Cambodia, or even get lost in the bush without Google Maps guiding the way out! So we figure it would be nice to show them the world how we once saw it, because we think its pretty rad.

So kids if you’re seeing this, this adventure is all for you!

Much love, Mum and Dad

Lost On Earth

Australia to Arctic Circle

90,000 kilometre, two year adventure from Australia to the Arctic Circle via South America. Suffered from dehydration, starvation and disease. Rebuilt motorcycle four times.


Memories: Waking up behind iron bars in Tierra Del Fuego; traversing the length of the Amazon with a 260-kilogram motorcycle in tow; evading pumas in Guyana; skimming across the Caribbean on a yacht with wanted criminals; dodging bullets in Nicaragua and finally paddling a few laps in the Arctic Ocean.


Adrenaline rush adventure through the Americas turning a dream of following the road less travelled into a reality.

Natural Born Traveller - The Great Divide


Jan 2008 - February 2008

An 8,000km, motorcycle journey along one of Australia's most beautiful landscapes - The Great Dividing Range; for Discovery Channel. The remote and picturesque mountain range is home to crazy characters; with world class climbing, caving, fishing, skiing and white water rafting. I got nude with the unofficial mayor of Nimbin, Michael Balderstone; rode bulls with two time World Bullriding Champion, Troy Dunn, and caught snakes with Jim the Snakeman.
