This is the Vagabondo’s esprit as the basis of his globe-trotting project: not just the realization of his lifetime dream which, however, would be enough to justify this effort, but also helping other people to achieve their dreams. With this aim the collaboration among Vagabondo, Lions and Albergo Etico was born. Through meetings at the several Lions clubs located along the 73 Nations to be crossed, Vagabondo will promote two projects for charity aims carried on by these important associations and he will collect money for them. A dream around the world on a bike, which gives hope to hundreds of people!
