Why would someone sell nearly everything he owns, then pack up and travel for three years, alone, on a motorcycle? One day Allan Karl woke up to discover that he was unemployed and his marriage had ended in divorce.
Allan looked at these forks in the road of his life as an opportunity to both follow a life-long dream and pursue his passions. He hopped on his motorcycle and traveled around the world. After three years and 62,000 miles of riding, through 35 countries on 5 continents, he returned home only to set out on another journey--to share the truths he'd uncovered and the lessons learned during his adventure around the world. Through stories, color photos, and the flavors of real local food, Forks brings his adventure to life and the world to your table: the kindness of strangers, the beauty of humanity, the colors of culture, and the powerful gift of human connection.
