About the Author
Allan Karl is a world traveler, adventurer, photographer, author, entrepreneur, TV host, and inspirational keynote speaker. With an insatiable passion for travel, culture, people, food, and wine, he has explored more than 75 countries on his motorcycle, photographing, writing, and blogging about them along the way. Allan inspires people to pursue dreams, overcome challenges, tackle obstacles, embrace change, and smile--especially in the face of adversity. And he knows how. For ten years, Allan has ridden his motorcycle alone all over our planet. On one continuous three-year solo journey around the world, armed guerillas marched him into the Colombian jungle at gunpoint, and he crushed his leg in the middle of nowhere in Bolivia and had to beg the governments of Syria and Sudan to let him across their borders. (Eventually, they gave in.) Allan is the principal of WorldRider Productions, where when not riding the world on his motorcycle, he shares his experiences through speaking, publishing, and coaching. Here he creates content that brings to life his stories and adventures from around the world--showing again and again how the discoveries he has made and the lessons learned can help all of us lead more rewarding lives. A dynamic and inspiring professional speaker, Allan shares his message with captivating storytelling and award-winning photography that touch themes of risk-taking, facing fear, embracing change, and personal growth. His stories highlight the importance of tolerance, openness, diversity, effective communication, and following dreams and pursuing passions.
Reviews
"I love this book; it's a work of art. Part adventure story, part photo essay, part recipe book, and all gorgeous, Forks: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection lives in a category by itself." --Steve Farber, author, The Radical Leap
"This is not your ordinary travel memoir . . . Gotta love it--travel, adventure, photography and food." --Vera Marie Badertscher, blogger, A Traveler's Library
"All of us at Overland International love a good travel epic and Allan Karl may have provided us with one of our favorite stories of the year." --Christophe Noel, editor, Expedition Portal
"Allan Karl is a naturally vibrant explorer of roads, continents, people, and cuisine. His full-color book reflects this vibrance with photos of the people he meets and the food he is offered. You're going to want it!" --Carla King, author, American Borders
