Michael Fassbender marks acting break with bike trip

London: Michael Fassbender embarked on a 5,000 mile motorcycle trip across Europe in 2011 after shooting movies back-to-back for almost two years.

The 34-year-old said shooting for six projects in just 20 months took a toll on him and he decided to go for a biking holiday with his father and a friend, reported Contactmusic.

"My dad, a friend and I took a motorcycle trip around Europe. We covered 5,000 miles. That was a good way to unwind for two months," Fassbender said.
