Around the world in 360 degrees

Stuck in a cubicle this afternoon? We’re not entirely sure this is going to make you feel any better but it’s pretty neat anyway.

Alex Chacon, a freelance photographer, has been driving his motorcycle around the world — although he pretty much missed the entire American Midwest — after putting his doctoral studies on hold in Texas. He’s raised money for various charitable causes.

According to his website, he sold everything he owns — except for the motorcycle, of course — to be able to do this.

He tells the Daily Mail that his favorite spots so far are Alaska, Bolivia and Brazil.

But that’s only because he missed the Midwest.
