Spark Your Dream is a book written by Candelaria and Herman Zapp. It is an awesome story of an Argentinian couple living a dream life around the world. They travel the world in their wooden-wheeled 1928 Graham Paige limited edition. From Argentina to Alaska and many big cities and obscure towns, and to the Philippines… they are enjoying the warm hospitality of the Filipinos. “I am amazed,” beams Candy. “Filipinos are extroverts.”
I asked what is the most unforgettable part of their journey. “The people,” says Herman.
