Big thanks to everyone for making this possible, it has been just over a year since I started the Patreon support page and by now there are over 95 supporters! I am able to comfortably travel now and stop to edit new videos on the way, in addition to being able to buy some upgrades! (next EP will have… a surprise!!)

Learn how you can help!

    Thank you for sharing this Johan. The mountains are just spectacular in Peru. And you know when to get the best light. So inspiring. I am glad to read that you are now making this your job. The never ending commute…

    Salut mon ami!


  2. Iohan, I am proud of you! Are you doing well? With a journey this long, it is human nature to feel low and get into a pit of mental despair. I hope that you are having a clean mind and veil of health as you enter the last half/third/quarter of this journey. Your videos and optimistic mind has inspired me twice over and I am happy to see you continuing. Please remember to check in with yourself and be prepared for the peaks and valleys, both physical and mental. Please stop for a bev in the Colorado Rocky Mountains sometime, as I hope to tell you these things in person.
