Europe Hitchhiking in Europe is fun. There are many small countries to enjoy hitching through, motorways in the Western parts can be exceptionally good, and overall hitchhiking is relatively safe. Some countries such as Germany are quite easy to hitch around, for example, for the large distances in a single lift, or with the possibility to go really fast (especially where driving speed is not limited). England is usually good because of the relatively short waiting time. Note: In France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland and Italy trucks are not allowed to use motorways on Sundays and on public holidays. Hitching is rather safe in Europe. For crossing the borders have a look at the Schengen Agreement. When hitching longer distances it's generally good to stick to gas stations on the motorway.

She's also a proud and happy hitchhiker, catching rides between France, Spain and Switzerland, and writing about the subject of women hitching rides for The Choriza magazine. Stephanie, 29, also regularly gets on the road with strangers. More than a means of transportation, Stephanie sees hitchhiking as a way of life: an outlet for free and open-ended travel, a desire to meet new people and take risks. “In hitchhiking, everything is open," she explains. Stephanie talks with enthusiasm about two Serbian truck drivers who took her to Romania. It is the randomness that gives hitchhiking its allure.

RoadTrip America - Road Trip Planning for North America Surfing our way across the eastern Balkans | travelling carrs We seem to have made a habit of cycling through country after country with little more than 2 days between borders. While this isn’t something I’m necessarily proud of (although it does suggest our amazing speed), we’ve come to appreciate that even 48 hours in a small country astride a bicycle can give one a certain feel for the place. Clean cyclists in Skopje Zlatko vs. Devon, backgammon at the local tea shop A delicious Balkan feast courtesy of Zlatko and Sonja’s local joint We pedalled out of the Kosovo mountains at a great pace to meet our first Couchsurfing host of the trip, Zlatko, in Skopje.

En fait je vais en faire plusieurs, ça me permettra de disgresser un peu et de parler des voyages en général. cette première FAQ concerne le budget puisque c’est à propos de ça que j’ai le plus de questions. 1) Comment as-tu financé ton voyage? 2) Mais dis donc, 16000€ (ou même 15 000) ça se trouve pas sous un sabot de mörshleg !

This small entourage (weighing less than 45 pounds in total) comes with me as I wander around the world, sometimes quickly, but mostly slowly. In 2011 alone, I traversed 13 countries and over 45,360 miles. What if I told you it wasn't? Believe it. How to Keep Your Travel Costs Low Of course, I could travel for way more than $17,000/year.
