Catherine Germillac has been riding the same motorcycle for going on 30 years, a small 2-stroke Yamaha DTMX 125. As a young woman, setting out on a solo motorcycle wasn't a common thing to do in the late 1980's. But being inspired by Ted Simon's Jupiter's Travels, she fell in love with the idea of motorcycling, travel and adventure, purchased her beloved motorcycle, that she calls Desiree, took some lessons and then started riding. She spent 6 years travelling on her bike, taking some time out in Colombia and Ecuador, before continuing her journey to Australia. In this episode, the memories and experiences that Catherine shares about that extended trip really make you understand the essence of her character, feisty, strong, fun and determined.
