Hitchhiking

If you have come here from Hitchwiki or some other hitchhiking information source then you are probably a hitchhiker yourself.

Below I have collected all my posts on hitchhiking in certain areas of the world. These are not all the places I have hitchhiked but merely the ones I posted about and I think also see a lot of hitchhiker traffic.

Each post contains information on leaving cities too which can be difficult and time consuming. Under some countries I also posted a few tips, these don’t provide any information on the routes but just some general tips for the country.

These posts are not my stories by the way but more guidelines for other people planning these routes. My stories from the road about the towns and people I meet can be found here.

The general tips apply to many different places, happy thumbing folks!
