Meetings and Reconnections
Some impressions of Ricks Roadtrip
10 years ago I met Rick Koda on his trip around the world. Rick has traveled around the world with a Kawasaki KLR for about 2 years. At that time he was fulfilled with Bob Dylan lyrics. We shared the road for 4 days and talked about the world, ourselves, women, drugs and everything else.
Rick was responsible for my internet activity. He inspired me with his (recently closed) online diary to publish news about my life as a photographer.
He stands for all the other people I met on the road. There are so many people that have inspired me and have given me impulses for what I am now, not only as a photographer.
Winter is the season to reconnect and see what these people actually are doing.
Rick is an intense guy, always surprising me with his lifestyle. Imagine to see a Harvard student who worked with less responsibility as a pizza delivery boy after a two year world trip.
During the years it was always interesting to see what is going on with Rick.
This year I receive a new message:
Hi there! I am currently enjoying a low-tech life style.
No internet, no email, and no cell phone.
He is offering to stay connected the good old way.
Unbelievable but maybe he found the right answer to the facebook and twitter mania.
Here are some other people I met on the road:
Do you have any road trip companions?
