Hitchhiking, like couch-surfing, is a way of active traveling aimed at exploration, discovery and fun. Among other things, hitchhiking is:
- The cheapest way of traveling
- A great way to meet new people and make friends
- An alternative and fun way to organize a vacation
- A great way to learn the world and yourself
- The best way to see real life from the inside, rather than through a hotel’s window
- And much more…
