ABOUT THIS BLOG

In the summer of 2009, Nicolas Rapp decided to take a break from his Art Director job at The Associated Press to attempt a one-year overland travel around the world in a 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser. He was back in New York in February 2011 after traveling 15 months and 37,000 miles.

  • People helping the expedition

    Posted on November 1st, 2009 Nicolas No comments

    Few weeks after my website went online, a friend suggested I added a “donate” button on the side. I did, thinking nobody I didn’t know would donate to this crazy guy going around the world in a 13 years old car. But people did. Sometimes $5, sometimes $20, once in a while $100.

    But the really helpful thing is that I discovered people cared for me and the expedition. And when I’m driving, see amazing landscape and people, it is cause of people who believe in our community.

    And all of you are part of the adventure as I am. I am working for you.

    Also a special thanks to Lynn Dombek and Sergio Pecanha who will be taking care of some logistic while i will be away.
