When Alex Chacon decided to travel halfway around the world, he didn't choose to do so like your average tourist.

One Man's Amazing 82,500 Mile Motorcycle Adventure

Rather, he decided to travel by motorcycle as a unique way to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience. A biomedical sciences graduate from the University of Texas, Chacon initiated the trip as a way to fulfill his traveling dreams before beginning his doctoral studies. Throughout the journey, Chacon documented everything through photo and video. In addition to a personal adventure, the project, which has been dubbed a Modern Motorcycle Diaries, also raises awareness and funding for non-profit organization Children of Uganda.

But I will spend a little time reviewing how I’ve written about stories previously here on this blog and in my books (you might want to explore The Best Digital (& Non-Digital) Storytelling Resources for even more info). Neuroscience researchers Renate and Geoffrey Caine have reflected on the importance of stories in their study of two types of memory systems: taxon and locale. Taxon learning consists of lists, basic skills, and habits. Locale, on the other hand, involves creating stories out of a person’s life experiences. Professor Melanie Green calls it “narrative transportation.”

And here’s how Jerome Bruner summed up the research: But just teaching information through storytelling is only….part of the story.
