Birgit Soyka was born and raised in Germany. After she successfully completed her apprenticeship in retail sales, she changed fields and worked several years for the motorcycle magazine ”mo” in Germany. She became one of the first female motorcycle racers in her time. In 1985, she decided to take a leap of faith to embark on the longest journey of her life following nothing more than her intuition and the path of unexplored territory. She took advantage of many opportunities and built a successful business career in the international Logistics sector. Eventually she experienced career burnout, which was the trigger to re-think life as it was. Today she makes her home in San Francisco, California, and has embarked once again on a journey of self-exploration, planning another adventure on a motorcycle—this time focused on environmental challenges and alternative technology.
