Edward is a hitchhiker from Hong Kong who studies in London. He tries to travel as much as can; due to limited time he could only travel short distances from London meaning he is most familiar with the Belgium, Netherlands, Northern France, Southern England area when it comes to hitchhiking. Ever since his first solo hitchhike at the age of 17, Edward has hitchhiked all over Europe and in some parts of Asia. 18 months on from his first experience with the Fijian army officer, he has now hitchhiked more than 15,000 km. He lacks money to fly to the America's or Africa so travelling by land is the only way. He is hitchike fluent in English, French, Spanish, Turkish, Mandarin and Cantonese.
His 2 distinctive features are: a) He always wears a florescent yellow vest ever since he was hit by a car.
b) He is a lazy traveller; always travels with a small, foldable seat. After 10 minutes of waiting you're likely to find him chilling on his seat.
If you spot him during your roadtrips please give this guy a ride.
