June 07, 2015: Famous Italian photographer Luca Bracali has begun his journey across Vietnam on a Vespa. This ride is a part of the project explorer initiated by himself.

“When I was a child, I dreamt of roaming by a Vespa scooter, a symbol of freedom, innocence and joie de vivre to explorers. The experience will be new and make me touched as I have travelled by different vehicles, including sleigh, balloon, car, motorcycle and even dog-sledge”, Bracali said.

He said that he will open a photo exhibition about the beauty of the land and people of Vietnam right after the journey ends.
