Random Roads

Random Roads is a website and forthcoming printed magazine about hitchhiking and other forms of independent / free-fall traveling.

Articles, news about the magazine, videos and a workflow-tool to help editing articles can be found at

The main idea is to inspire fellow-travelers, share skills, tips and stories in all media-formats. A magazine is also a perfect way to help documenting and sustaining a vibrant subculture.

Each issue will have several recurrent features, ideas so far include:

  • a featured traveler
  • travel,
  • country (or city),
  • sharing-network (e.g. hospitality exchange, travel-learn),
  • surviving in the (urban) jungle,
  • how to travel no/low-budget etc.
  • nomadic living

Issues might also contain specific city-information on hitchhiking spots, how to get food, free internet, where to sleep, etc., similar to the intention of the Hitchhiking Zine.
