Andrew Palmer: Motorcycle World Trip – with a Voyage-Air Guitar

Andrew Palmer has spent years planning a great adventure: to ride his motorcycle around the world.  He recently departed his native home near London, UK, and headed south through Spain.  He’s currently making his rounds of the African continent.

Of all the things someone might take on a trip like this, Andrew knew he needed his music and his guitar along for the ride.  His pick?  A Voyage-Air Guitar, strapped securely to the tail of his motorcycle!

We just got this note from Andy:
“I'm currently Morocco waiting for a visa for Mauritanian and I'm not that far from the UK really, but I'm already glad that I've brought the guitar with me. I've spent a few days relaxing in Morocco and have got to play it quite a bit. I'm likely to be in Morocco for another couple of weeks, partly due to the long distance to the border and the quality of the roads there, but mostly because of the fantastic Moroccan hospitality.

Andrew Palmer“I heard about Voyage-Air guitars from a post on the Horizons Unlimited website that was discussing traveling with musical instruments. I had tried a few other travel guitars, but just wasn't happy with the compromised sound you get from smaller bodies. Not to say that they are bad, just not as good as full size (guitar). I couldn't imagine being without a guitar for such a long time.”

Andy maintains a Blog of his world travels, and they’re fascinating: http://intotheride.wordpress.com/

So what’s involved with taking the ultimate travel guitar along with you… on an ultimate travel adventure?  On a motorcycle?  Andrew is going to keep us posted with pictures and comments along the way.

A part of Andrew’s journey is to help raise funds for a charity: the Heswall Disabled Children’s Holiday Fund.  There’s more info here: www.hdchf.org.uk

Customer Review

I was extremely impressed with the product. It had a patented hinge that allowed it to fold in half at the base of the neck and fit into a small case. The case, also configured to accommodate a laptop computer, was designed to fit into the overhead bin of most commercial airliners.
