Hitchhiking

One of the best ways to meet local people is to hitchhike. Throughout my hitchhiking journey, I have met thousands of people from all walks of life. There is so much to learn from the local people, from politics, to religion and culture. In addition, you can also learn new languages! In just one year of hitchhiking in Latin America, I have miraculously picked up Spanish and can now speak pretty fluently.

Here are some of my hitchhiking stories around the world. Hopefully you can find some inspiration in them and maybe also start your hitchhiking journey!
