WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In summer 2018, just two weeks before leaving and without any kind of training, I bought a bicycle and left Milan to Brindisi. A solo trip 1500km long and lasted 14 days.
It was a wonderful journey that made me love my country even more. It changed me because it allowed me to explore in a new way, knowing people, places, stories and showed me the differences of Italy.
Now, I'm going to do the same but on the other side of the world.
I'm fascinated by Japan since I was a child and I had the the opportunity to go there three times.
I would like to be able to cross it from North to South, from Sapporo to Kagoshima in a 3000km long journey and discover one of the most interesting cultures and countries in the world.
It will be a photographic journey in which I will document my experiences, telling about this extraordinary country also through people's stories I will meet along the way and through pictures.
Joining my two greatest passions: travel and photography.
The departure will depend on the result of the project. Indicatively, the best period due to the weather conditions is April/May/June and September/October 2019.
HOW FUNDS WILL BE USED?
The funds are divided into various goals that will allow me to improve my travel experience:
Round trip flight with bicycle transport + health and travel insurance
Equipment (tent, accessories and repair tools)
- Food and water
- Overnight stay in a hostel in case of bad weather
WHO'S BEHIND THE PROJECT?
My name is Federico, I'm 25 and I'm from Milan.
My greatest passion is traveling and I try to do it as much as possible, especially in Asia, the continent I love the most.
I like to discover new countries, cultures and people.
Last summer, for the first time, I took my bike and I went alone from home to Brindisi, covering 1500 km on a journey that allowed me to explore in a whole new way.
From that time I'm thinking about a new adventure on my bike but in another country: Japan.
WHY "MY NEXT TRIP"?
"My Next Trip" is the name of the Youtube channel I opened two years ago. Here I publish videos about my experiences and stories of my travel.
It's a kind of hobby that I keep going on because I really like it.
WHY PEOPLE SHOULD SUPPORT THIS PROJECT?
It is certainly an initiative that arouses curiosity and interest.
In addition to enriching me, it will enrich the public through all the experiences I will live along this journey.
The photographic material and stories I will collect, will allow people to travel with me and to discover what a country as far as Japan has to offer.
Every donation that will be made, will help me to go further and further and to give me the right motivation.
I want to inspire people, bring positivity and open minds to a new kind of exploration.
