Guitar & Road trip Challenge across Canada

This social travel challenge is a musical one. I have to learn to play the guitar with friends and followers across Europe and North America.

But that's not all.

I also have to drive an old Volkswagen van across Canada finding people that can teach me songs and help me improve my skills.

And here comes the catch.

I then have to make my way from Vancouver all the way South to Panama but this time I'll have to busk for my gas as proof that I actually learned to play the guitar.

No skills... No moving forward :-)

I'm looking forward to get some lessons from whoever wants to teach me a thing or two about guitar playing.

Maybe You?

The Challengers

This challenge is a product of the imagination of tandem buddies Kyra and Alain :-)

The Trajectory

The challenge is divided into 3 parts

1. Learn basic guitar skills in Europe and find a Volkswagen T2 van before July 2014.

2. Cross Canada from East to West in the van and learn songs with the locals. July to October.

3. Busk for your gas from Vancouver to Panama and prove that I play guitar. October to December.

Follow and shape the story as it happens

Gibson welcomed me to the family and provided me with an awesome guitar. They reach out to their own community to teach me the ropes and will set up guitar lessons with artists they work with. Rock and Roll Baby!

The people from the Canadian Tourism Commission will show me the most beautiful and cool places in Canada and will help me reach out to the locals for awesome van jam sessions.

The GoPro dudes send me a Van and Guitar cam and help me capture this adventure on video. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to see new episodes first.
