Patrick & Sherrie met while Patrick was on his first world trip in 2004 with Emma, a BMW R 100 GS Paris-Dakar. Riding from Germany through Russia and into Mongolia, Patrick ended up in South Korea where he decided to teach English on a freelance basis while Emma made her journey across the sea to Chile. Wandering into a bar one night he met Sherrie, who was also an English teacher in Seoul, and who more importantly, had access to hot showers in her apartment (a luxury that was not provided by his 10 dollar a night hostel). As it was the end of October and winter was beginning to make itself felt in the land, he thought it would be prudent to continue the relationship, unbeknown to him that when he offered Sherrie the chance to join him in South America he was in fact asking her to fulfill a dream of hers to visit Chile, and she would actually take him up on the offer. Now they call Germany home, where they both ride BMW F 650 GSs and are constantly plotting or on a motorcycle journey (at the moment on a trip from Germany to Newfoundland).
