WE ARE WORKING HARD ON THE 2016 PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!! Come back in June 2016.

For inspiration, here is LAST YEAR’S:



Nina from Youarealltourists has travelled to over 70 countries and has hitchhiked in almost all of them, she has as hitched not only on the road, but also on water and through the air. When she was 20 she hitched across the Sahara desert by herself. A few months later on the same trip she got a cargo ship to take her to the Cap Verde islands.  Since, she hitchhiked on yachts to go back to Africa, in Pakistan she hitchhiked with an armed guard through a border region,  and on Borneo she hitched along rivers with crocodiles to villages not connected by road, where the children had never seen a foreigner before. And that’s just a fraction of the stories she has to tell. Hitch-hiking, Saturday 18th July, Female Solo Travel: 19th July
