I manly hitchhiked in central Europe, and usually for doing visits. I started in 2016 as money was short, but quickly started to love it! For me it is mainly getting from A to B and it has the positive effect of meeting interesting people on the way. At the moment I am often going from Belgium, mainly Liège, to different places in Germany. I also used hitchhiking to do some cheaper shopping behind the border. I never tried hitchhiking in the USA as a friend got arrested while doing so. In Peru I had very nice experiences, but most people expect you to pay a little bit for the service of taking you along.
