His name is Alex Chacón and he made his way through 36 countries, primarily on a motorcycle, using a GoPro camera on a stick to record snippets of selfie videos at every jungle, desert, beach, historical monument, natural wonder and architectural feat he visited.
Chacón explains on his website that prior to his trip, he sold all his belongings, including his car, TV and clothing. He also outlines some of the struggles he faced throughout the three-year journey:
