Guy grown mostly in France, doesn't really now where he live now but is sure that he will hit the road. He is not a hardcore hitchhiker but already made thousands and possibly tens of thousands of K this way. For a long time he hitchhiked without knowing there was thumb communities, totally isolated from his fellow hitchhikers. Nowadays he is aware of those things and feel challenged which will push him to do even more crazy hitchhiking.
My first hitchhiking was probably in Israel when I was 14, hiking in the desert with my sister. I started it by my on when I was 18 and since, I enjoy it in a non regularly basis but often enough to keep the spirit alive.
