When the road calls, the adventure starts.
This is the story of Nabil Halwani, a young Lebanese about to start the greatest adventure of his life. In less than 20 days, Nabil will begin his word tour by bike, a three year project crossing all continents and more than 50 countries. The aim is to reconnect Lebanese emigrants and raise a sense of unity in a country which has experienced war and sectarianism throughout its history.
Travelling without any money and only his bicycle, he will cross through Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Australia and the whole of the Asian continent; the first Lebanese to complete the world tour. An example of a different way of travelling, counting on the support of the people he will encounter and the help of nature.
Despite the importance of the project, however, we are here today not only to tell a beautiful story. Due to health problems in his family, Nabil has not yet been able to obtain all the equipment he will need for his trip. Lacking some basic necessities due to such financial hardship, we are here pledging for your support. In January, Nabil will reach the UK where the School of Oriental and African Studies will hold a conference for him, giving you the chance to meet the brave man you have assisted.
Time is running out quickly as the first boat ticket is already booked, help Nabil achieve his dream on the muddy streets of the whole world.
