Crazy RoadTrip through 30 countries to meet as many Vespa-clubs and enthusiast as possible for a unique portrait of the vespa-community

German Description : scroll down !

My dream is to create a big photobook about the society of vespadrivers in Europe by travelling all around (literally!)  Europe on an over 30 year old vintage-vespa to meet as many clubs and vespaowners as possible and interview and photograph them for a unique coffe table book.

Kickoff for the project is the World Vespa Days in Gjovik near Oslo this Year! Over 3-5000 enthusiasts from all over the world will meet there to celebrate the Vespa. I already want to meet and contact a big part of the community there to plan my route in summer.

The most beautiful rides and landscapes on the route, the oldest Vespaclubs in front of the most important and famous monuments and some personal highlights will be photographed and documented to create a unique portrait of a big community of vespalovers that has a history of over 60 years.

The Vespa has always been a magnet to photographers, artists and technic-fans all over the world cause of its unique style and immense durability ! Famous Actors and the neighbour next door love it equally and none of their vespas looks like the next cause it also expresses a lot of individuality and was customized as much as the famous Harley Davidson.

I experienced my love to this italian masterpieces of industrial design when I was 16 years old and it was the only way to get to my first girlfriend. It stands for me as for a lot of other enthusiast for a life with style and freedom.

So what do I need that immense amount of money for? The trip will lead me through over 30 countries and over a minimum of 25 000 kms. with an average of 250 kms a day and some days of break on the way I will be on the road over 4.5 month and this will take over 14.500 Euro in fuel, accomodation, food, oil, equipment etc. when only choosing camping and backpackers-hostels as well as cheap food. Then I have to add all the cost for the final first print of the book .A Big point why it looks so much is cause unfortunately the euro is very strong at the moment so 26.000 Dollars are "only" 17 500 Euro . Looks scary but I really calculated the minimum !

I really appreciate every cent pledged here cause my biggest dream would only stay a dream otherwise ! Follow my adventure and become a part of it !

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND PLEASE TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT IT !

Hallo Leute,

Mein Name ist Markus und ich traeume davon auf einer alten Vespa Europa zu umrunden. Ich moechte so viele Vespaclubs und Fahrer wie irgend moeglich besuchen, fotografieren und ein Fotobuch ueber die Gemeinschaft der Vespafahrer in Europa schaffen.

Das Hobby Vespa beschaefftigt mich seit ich 16 Jahre alt bin und es stand fuer mich, wie fuer viele Andere, fuer Freiheit, Stil und Spass.

Auch ueber 60 Jahre nach der Erfindung der Vespa gibt es eine Gemeinschaft von Tausenden von Fans der Vespa auf der ganzen Welt, die Ihrem klassischen Design , wie auch der Haltbarkeit der Motoren und deren unverwechselbaren Klang verfallen sind. Jede einzelne Vespa ist ein Unikat und genau wie bei der Harley Davidson geben die meisten Fahrer Ihrem Vehikel eine persoenliche Note durch Tuning und Umbau.

Dies alles und auch die Liebe zu diesem Designklassiker moechte ich in meinem Buch dokumentieren und den Vespafahrern und -fans auf der ganzen Welt zeigen.

Bitte unterstuetzt mein Projekt indem Ihr spendet oder all euren Freunden davon erzaehlt. Jeder Cent ist wichtig und ich Danke Euch schon jetzt fuer Eure Zeit und Euer Interesse !

WICHTIG : NUR WENN BIS ENDE DER LAUFZEIT 100% oder MEHR FUNDING ERREICHT WERDEN WIRD KICKSTARTER DAS GELD VON DEN KONTEN DER SPENDER ABHEBEN. FALLS DIES NICHT GESCHIEHT PASSIERT GARNICHTS!

Liebe Gruesse

Markus
