At the age of 19, a young Croatian by the name of Petar Rikic decided to leave home and travel around the world by motorcycle. Throughout the course of this immense journey he experienced an equally immense diversity of peoples, landscapes and cultures. By crossing borders, learning languages and immersing himself in dozens of unique communities he came to the life-changing conclusion that in order to become more alive and free, we need to erase the borders and boundaries that confine us politically, emotionally, culturally and psychologically.

As a young man's travel journal of experiences, composed on a laptop while travelling by motorcycle, Around the World jumps from juvenile travel narrative to pseudo-philosophical enquiry, from initial adolescent exuberance to something akin to mature reflection. Much like the geography that whizzes by along paved highways, dirt roads and hidden trails, Petar Rikic spins, thinks, writes and rides his way into the deep and multilayered territory of life's great questions and realizes that there really are no great answers beyond the act of searching itself.

The Croatian edition of Around the World has been translated into English and Spanish, with proceeds going to support and protect the Amazon environment and the rights of indigenous people living there.
