RAPIDES PARISH, La. (KALB) - After 12 years of 90 hour work weeks on Wall Street and a move to Southern California three years ago, French native Steven Levine needed a break.
Steven Levine, who is traveling cross country on his motorcycle says he "literally rode into the sunset" on February 1st. (KALB)
Drawing on his experience as a cyclist, Levine decided to make a 3,500-mile coast to coast trek on motorcycle.
"You're on two wheels you can smell, feel, see everything," he explained.
He's been on the road since the first of February. "I literally rode into the sunset."
The journey started in South Carolina where he picked up his gear and has stopped in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas so far.
"I want to be able to explore the country and meet our fellow citizens just to be able to have conversations and connect with other people. I've found that there are a lot of good people actually."
But there's no schedule. Levine is letting life take the lead, an experience he hopes will inspire others to go on their own adventures.
"They can reconnect with themselves. It's time that they don't have to spend on screens anymore or worrying about their office or job issues and they'll come away energized and a little happier."
Levine's trek ends in Orange County, Florida where his wife and daughter are waiting for him. You can follow his journey on Instagram @s1000rpost
