I Left Home With 80 Dollars And Traveled To 80 Countries By Hitchhiking
My friends used to tell me that I looked like Harry Potter. So for a long time I dreamt of becoming the magician of hitchhiking, having my right thumb as my magic wand.
In 2013 I left home with 80 dollars and so far I’ve traveled to 80 countries exclusively by hitchhiking means. In 3 years I hitchhiked more than 200 000 km in more than 3 000 cars, driven by joy. Beside a free ride, many people offered me a place to sleep, a meal, or some money to continue my journey.
People discovered my blog, appreciated my story and started to send small donations. That’s how I afforded a plane ticket to South America to continue hitchhiking there.
My photos are not of best quality because I couldn’t afford a camera or a smartphone, most of the time I didn’t have money for a Coke. So I asked people on the road to take photos of me and send them afterwards via email. Even if they are not professional images, I hope they capture happiness, youth and the love of living without useless expectations.
I had a lot of crazy adventures. In Afghanistan I met a taliban, in Mongolia I got lost in the desert and almost died, in Siberia I met 2 bears along the way. But, as you can see below, I had the time of my life.
I wrote a book about my travels and my dream is that one day I’ll have it translated to English and published. You can bet it’s gonna be the craziest travel journal you’ll ever read!
