Twenty-six year old, professional photographer Alex Chacón accomplished what most of us only fantasize about doing. After selling all his belongings, Chacón took on a three-year journey across the world -- with only his motorcycle and penchant for documenting his trip of a lifetime. 

On this adventure, Chacón rides his motorcycle over 19,000 kilometres and crosses more than 75 international borders, going from the Taj Mahal to the Maya Pyramids of Chichen Itza, and everywhere in between! 


SELFIE FAIL: The head kick seen around the world! (Ouch!!)


He shares beautiful videos and photos of his worldwide experiences on his site, Modern Motorcycle Diaries.

Since Chacón posted his "epic selfie" video on YouTube, Around the World in 360° Degrees, it's garnered more than five million clicks. 

Take in the sights (see below) of some of the world's most exotic regions in this three-minute selfie that's sure to give you wanderlust:
