El Pasoan Makes National News Traveling to 36 Countries in 600 Days Taking Selfies
A video of selfies El Pasoan Alex Chacon shot documenting his journey around the world has gone viral. Chacon visited 36 countries in 600 days - on a motorcycle, no less - and took a selfie at every major destination in every country he visited.
According to the bio on his website, Alex sold everything he owned to to go on his wonderful adventure, and lived out of his motorcycle for 3 years. And it wasn’t all sight-seeing either. Chacon raised money along the way for the Los Ojos de Dios orphanage in Juarez, and the Children of Uganda in Africa.
He writes on his Facebook page that the 3 minute video, titled "Around the World in 360 Degrees" took him “3 years to film and 5 months to edit.” Check it out. This is what the world looks like - selfie style!
