“First of all, it is absolutely not safe to travel by motorcycle in Haiti…I totally discourage you to travel this way…Two foreigners on a bike are bound for trouble…” the National Geographic adventure photographer warned us. I think we had two very different ideas of what adventure really is.
With that in mind, my boyfriend Narek and I packed ourselves and a week’s worth of amenities onto a motorcycle and rode around the south coast of Haiti. We barely knew the language, stayed with whoever we met along the way, and saw parts of the country the media never shows. It was an incredible way to discover a country that turned out to be richer than anyone seems to know.
