My name is Federico. Fede, Cicco or Cicca for friends (as my surname is somehow related with these words). I was born in Milan in 1989 and lived there till finished high school. As in Italy hitchhiking culture is not anymore that strong as before (people don't hitch cause they think it doesn't work, it's dangerous and so on, and drivers don't really pick up for the same reasons), I started hitch very late. Took bachelor degree in Middle Eastern languages in Venice, my dream was traveling, living the world overland as cheap as possible. On November 2011, I started, with almost 20-30 km (random when buses were not available) on my counter I tried first serious hitchin in southern france, worked amazingly and never stopped..As Paluch said to me in Morocco: it gives addiction! and it's definitely true! Now it has passed more than 2 years and still i don't feel like stopping somewhere..there are people traveling the whole life, and in the end, isnt the whole life a travel? even staying in the same physical place.. Good route, good luck good life to all!
After 3 years of nomadic life, changing routes, styles, lives, "what do i do", starting busking, even flying on planes! wasting money, living moneyless, dumpster diving, going to 5 star restaurants (on the top of a skyscraper in Tehran..) I decided to try low down my ego and write less. Most of tips and advice will be posted on the new amazing Nomadwiki, which I really love and share concepts as visions, being what i had in my mind creating my blog and ll keep it for personal stories, and stuff. http://notalonelyplanet.altervista.org if you want to know "where I am" and "what I am doing"
