A trip to Vietnam and the death of a close friend ignited the wanderlust in Singaporean lass Juvena Huang, who set out to ride around the world solo on her vintage Vespa scooter on 16th May 2015, a journey which began from Singapore and which saw her transverse 25 countries* over 44,000km in 27 months.

This is her story.

* The countries include Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Iran, Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Kosovo, Italy, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Czech Republic.
