So. OH MY GOD. You are my new hero!!!! I am totally excited for you and I can’t wait till I get a minute to read your whole blog. I have actually never tried hitchhiking before but I want to (I normally travel by motorcycle), and I absolutely love how little you plan and such, as I am the same way, I feel like planning too much is pointless when you want adventure. Keep rocking it girl! Ps I will follow you on all social media.

Thank you so much for your message both here and on Facebook! :D I always say I have ideas on my trip, not plans.. and then someone still asks “OK, so, what’s your plan?” ;) I love love love motorbikes by the way Read more >

Sleepless in Gozo

This morning I woke up on #Gozo in my sleeping bag at the drydocks of #Dwejra. There’s a little inner sea here that formed a natural harbor for small fishing boats and that cave you see in the background is where the boats enter and leave this calm protected area. Some people woke me up Read more >

I hitched to the island of #Gozo today and whatever the guidebooks say is true! It’s much calmer and it’s still really hot. I’m now at #Dwejra where there’s some massive rocks with massive holes in the sea. I hope to go #camping here with my borrowed skeleton sportsbag that contains my inner tent, sleeping Read more >

Hey! I’m going to Europe next July (I’m Australian), starting off in Istanbul then wanting to make my way across to the UK. I’ve been over there before and pretty much just stuck to trains and whatnot but I’m thinking maybe this time hitchhiking is the way to go (not the whole way, I’m not that ambitious and have limited time). When you first started out did you do it with a mate or did you just go for it? Got any tips for a first timer? Thanks :)

Hey! Sounds like a great trip you’re planning! My first introduction to hitchhiking was with a roommate when I was living in Denmark. He had experience and I didn’t and it’s a great country to get started. After that one day I started doing it alone, which was just a little step up really. Go for a day’s hitch with a friend in Australia before you go to get familiar with the concept and what works and what doesn’t. The only thing you need to do is put up your thumb and smile - it’s that simple! See if you like it over there on the other side of the world before you try it on a different continent/culture and don’t push yourself if you’re not comfortable. I don’t know how much time you’ll spend in Europe and what you want to see, but Istanbul - London can be done really fast as well! Take a good offline map (I… Read more >
