== Travelling without Money ==
There are some people out there who hitch hike LONG distances with no money such as the infamous Tom Thumb, who hitched from England to India with just his rucksack, a clarinet, 2 loafs of bread and
GBP 0.00. There are also not so famous hitchers like [[User:Aaronishappy|Aaronishappy]] who hitched from Norway to Morocco, with just EUR 2 arriving in Norway and his rucksack (and coming back with NKR 20, EUR 5, CHF 4 and GBP 2, which is NKR 20, EUR 5, CHF 4 and GBP 2 more than he had when he left!).
While completely crazy it is certainly possible, but not necessarily fun. You will ask yourself several times a day "what am I going to eat" or "where am I going to sleep", you will regret ever leaving your house, but knowing that no matter how bad things get they can only get better is a certain comfort. Don't forget, though, that while you see all these fancy backpackers with their expensive train tickets and those posh tourists stuffing themselves with cakes at the hotel restaurant, they're only seeing the plastic, fake, tourist side of a country. You in your desperate efforts to survive get to see the entirety of a country, "warts and all"!
