My wonderful girlfriend Jennifer is back in the U.S. after Peace Corps, and is helping me fund this project. While on this trip, I am hoping to raise awareness about the Peace Corps and Balkan history in general.

I will be traveling with my bike and carrying everything I own.

My Objectives:

1: Get to Charles De Gaulle Airport on June 30 by 6 am.

2: Learn more about the culture of the Balkans, Italy and France.

3: Spread information about Balkan and American culture, as well as the Peace Corps.

4: See as much art as possible.

5: Be a representative of an American POC citizen/Peace Corps volunteer.

As you might know, Peace Corps volunteers work for free, so I don't have too much money for this trip, but I do think this is an important mission. Anything you can give will help.

I will be updating my blog along the way so you can travel with me.

Whatever money I don't use will be donated to "Bikes Not Bombs":

Donate $10 or more: You get a postcard!

If I meet my goal, I will also be writing an ebook that will be available to download.

I will also be writing a song about my trip that will be performed by me on guitar and will be available for FREE as a download!
