Nikki Misurelli got the ultimate revenge on her former partner after he told her she wouldn't be able to handle a large scale motorbike trip.
Her ex was planning a 'boys trip' from the US to Argentina and she desperately wanted to join.
She's told the Independent that he turned her down, saying it was 'too dangerous and intense'.
So, they broke up and she went by herself.
Sounds like a cheap romcom script to me but still a great story.
Nikki eventually passed her driving test and used her Honda CBR600RR to trek across the world.
The first trip was from Alaska to Panama, covering 12,000 miles of stunning landscape.
But then she got hooked on the travelling lifestyle and didn't want to stop.
She said: "I have no house and barely any possessions.
"I pulled all my retirement money and sold almost all of my belongings.
"It's amazing how little we actually need in life."
She's modified her sports bike by adding in dual sports tyres to allow it to travel through trickier terrain.
Last month, she completed a 5,500 mile journey through Italy, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar, Austria, Slovenia and Morocco.
But the epic trip isn't always glamorous. She once slept in a highway tunnel in Italy.
She said: "I did some camping in the mountains but it was really cold.
"It was pouring down and I wanted somewhere warm, with no wind or rain.
"I didn't feel like socialising or finding an Airbnb so I just decided to go for it."
Nikki also has a tent and hammock to allow her to sleep pretty much anywhere she chooses - which also keeps costs low.
If you're thinking how the hell she manages to keep going on nothing, Nikki manages to work part-time in between her epic rides when she needs to top up the bank account.
Her next adventure will be the Middle East or North Africa and despite the obvious risk, Nikki doesn't scare easily.
"Bad things can happen anywhere in the world, but there are more good people than bad," she explained.
"I want women around the world to get out there and get travelling. If you want something enough, you can make it work."
