Hitchhiking is an adventurous way of traveling and really not as dangerous as most people think. Even though we never know who we'll meet or where we'll end up at the end of the day, we love it! We get to see the country through the eyes of the locals and by sharing stories with them, we learn more about the culture and traditions than if we would take a bus or a train. Traveling overland also allows us to experience the vastness of our planet, see the land and culture change as we're advancing.

It can sometimes be challenging but we see those moments as invitations to grow as a person. We learn to be patient and flexible, to trust our instincts, adapt our environment and enjoy every moment (which is not always as easy as it sounds).

On this page you'll find all the information, tips and stories that we compiled for you about our hitchhiking trip around the world.
