ACERCA DE NAOMI TWEDDLE AND ALBERTO LARA
Naomi Tweddle was born in Victoria, Canada and grew up in a small island community in the Southern Gulf Islands. She still calls Canada home; currently living in the beautiful province of British Columbia. From an early age Naomi was exposed to motorcycles as her parents took her and her sister on bike trips aboard their ‘78 Triumph Boneville and ‘73 Honda CB. She started riding motorcycles at the age of 16.
When motorcycle adventure travel became a thing Naomi was naturally drawn to the idea and became a passion of hers. Naomi has documented her travels spanning over 100,000 km and 12 countries through blogging and photography and continues to pursue travel opportunities riding motorcycles.
She has curiosity for the unknown, for the challenge and to see new places, whether it’s 100 km from home or 25,000 km from home. There is something new lurking around every corner.
Alberto Lara was born and raised in Peru. Alberto grew up in the perfect environment to become a tireless traveler. Alberto’s dad worked in remote areas in the Peruvian Andes due his profession in the mining industry, which required the family to regularly travel deep into the mountains.
Exposed to the beauty and magic of Peru’s mountain regions, Alberto’s appreciation for these areas developed from an early age. Alberto’s dad had his first motorcycle (Honda C50) when he was a teenager and when Alberto turned 12, his dad bought him a 50cc scooter which he rode until he was 17.
Alberto came to Canada at the age of 23 searching for new experiences and challenges. Five years later, he met Naomi, his partner in life. Alberto was reintroduced to the world of two wheels by Naomi, who not only influenced Alberto’s decision to get a motorcycle but also taught him how to operate a proper motorbike with a clutch & gears.
Photography was one of the hobbies Alberto developed while in Canada. Combining his passion for traveling, the incomparable thrill he gets from riding motorcycles and his sharp eye for photography was a spontaneous occurrence.
