One Amazing Thing I've Done

Autumn 2010 I spontaneously decided to go visit some friends in far away places. 2 days later I was standing beside the road by myself, with a backpack and surprisingly little preparation, holding my thumb up.

The trip eventually lasted over 3 months and took me 4000 km through Germany, Austria and the Balkans, to Southern Turkey and back to Greece. Until winter arrived unexpectedly at the end of November and I took a flight back, due to the fact that I had only brought summer clothes and although freezing in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere seems quite adventurous (and it is...), it wasn't the adventure I was looking for anymore :D

It was a very interesting experience and I found that there are many ways in which hitchhiking can be seen as a metaphor for life in its entirety. If anything, you certainly get to know a lot about yourself and others. Good and bad. Recommended for everyone :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach some photography and electronic music production.
