Probably the coolest thing I did in my early twenties was hitchhiking through Europe from Hungary to Paris! I also did this on what was my Romanian student’s budget – under 40$ a week.
I describe, in detail, the financial strategies employed (accommodation and transport) as well as the personal experience of being on the road: the good, bad and the ugly.
Also see my $2/day food budget!
Note: The person on the left is my travelling companion, and the one on the right is me, 3 years ago. Yes, travelling was a transformative experience, but not that much!
