Hahaha this is kind of a cool idea. Makes me want to visit some cold places. I have travelled a lot of ways back in USA (snowmobile, fourwheeler, waterskiing, snow board, ski, canoeetc.) but on travels hmmm.

Plane, train, tram, bike, ship, boat, swim, motorcycle (rented my own and taken rides), tricycle, bus (too many types to count), gua-gua, raft, horse, elephant, camel, all different speeds and types of trains, driven myself, taxis, ubers, on foot (have walked and run a long way on my travels). The things I am missing outside of usa pretty much all have to do with snow haha

My favorite ways of traveling were probably elephant, horse and camel. Something about going back in time with these modes of transportation.

Hahaha, I forgot about the GUA-GUA's in DR. Crappy small cars that have to fit in at least 7 people (unless you buy a double seat).

In Indonesia it's all about the Bajay

and OJEK's (motorbike taxis)

In Thailand these guys are called "Death Scooters"

In Myanmar I took a rooftop ride, because why wouldn't you fit in 20 more people on the roof of your van.

Notice how the only person without the helmet is the customer haha. I remember my first time on a death scooter, taking the helmet and the guy telling me it's for him. Then, when I asked where mine was he said he didn't have one. I'm guessing there is no blowback to their business when one of their customers dies.

The more often you take unusual modes of transport, the more adventures you will have and the more stories you will have to tell.  It is not always something as grand as the trans-Siberian railroad or as dangerous as various death-motos, but it is one of those small ways where you will slowly but surely change to the point where you look back and realize that you have squeezed more juice out of life and are a better man for having traveled that way.
 
Cool pics, keep them coming with stories attached as the thread moves forward.
 


 This takes Thai long boats to the next level.  No seat, no helmet, no vest, just speed and adrenaline.

We would always look for the taxi bike who built in speakers onto his bike, get some beers and cruise the city looking for girls. Good times!
