Daniel Rintz is a filmmaker, photographer and adventure motorcyclist from Dresden, Germany. Born in East Germany at a time when world travel was impossible for his family, Daniel’s whole world opened up when the Berlin wall fell and he embraced the opportunity to travel. Since then, he’s explored by bicycle, train and automobile, but motorcycling remains his passion.
In 2008, with a rough plan and no money, Daniel and his friend left East Germany for an around the world motorcycle adventure. With no safety net, they planned to work to finance their trip as they went along. In 2010, while in Asia, Daniel met Josephine (Joey) Flohr who was on a backpacking trip. She joined Daniel in his passion for motorcycling and they have been doing trips together ever since.
Daniel and Joey have recently completed a 3 year motorcycle adventure, and are putting together a film about their journeys, a sequel to Daniel’s first film “Somewhere Else Tomorrow”.
In this episode, he shares some great tips on making money on the road, travelling in Africa, and more.
