On Saturday a campsite with friends and family members near Vilnius marked the end of the round the world trip for two motorcycle enthusiasts Asta Dovydėnaitė and Linas Mockevičius. In 640 days or more than 21 months the two travelers traversed more than 100 thousand kilometers and visited 45 different countries. This experience will forever cement itself in their memory not only because of the thousands of photos taken during the trip, but also because of a new mention in the Lithuanian record books. They have become the first Lithuanians to cover this much distance using motorcycles.
