Every now and then we keep hearing one or other story about women or men who dared enough to take unforgiving journeys and here adds one more to it.
Meet Maral Yazarloo, an Iranian woman living in Pune for over 15 years.
Wired and tired of her 9-5 job as a fashion designer, just like all of us, Maral decided to pack her bags and penetrate the otherwise male-dominated region with her bike. Maral’s tryst with biking and roads began years ago when she was just a student and was accompanying one of her male friends on a road trip. The friend then asked Maral to take the lead and ride the bike. With her hands guiding the bike and wind in her hair, Maral began riding, and the rest is history. She then started her own travel blog and began penning her experiences as a female biker.
As of now, Maral has travelled 35 countries and 5 continents in a year, all by her self. She owns the coveted Harley-Davidson, a Ducati Diavel and the BMW F650GS, and she is using them one at a time.
In this journey, she has covered Bhutan, Southeast Asia, Australia, the US, Mexico, Central America, South America and Antarctica so far.
Also, setting another milestone for her and the rest of the world, Maral got married on this journey. Her bae travelled down all the way to Peru and they got married there.
HungryBoo is so proud and happy for Maral. We hope that women like her continue to travel and inspire each and every one of us.
