Off-the-beaten-track travelling... Or not?!

PORTUGAL | Wednesday, 2 May 2012 | Views [626]

I will postulate that there is no off the beaten path! Everything have been done, seen and eaten. But travelling should not be about being the most special and innovative traveller the world have seen, it is about finding the way that you personally ... Read more >

GERMANY | Wednesday, 11 Jan 2012 | Views [846] | Comments [2]

This little piece will just be an homage to all the amazing people I have met on my way. The people stopping in the middle of roundabouts, in the twillight, on service stations in the middle of the night for a possibly tired, extremely dirty (at points ... Read more >

A bit from everyday life on the road

DENMARK | Monday, 2 Jan 2012 | Views [369]

Hitchhiking is by now the normality for my and my everyday life. It takes some time to get used to this change and the changes in my behavior and norms it have brought with it. Of course everybody tells lie once in a while, but for my it is usually ... Read more >

Great people in Europe

GREECE | Friday, 2 Dec 2011 | Views [723]
