Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Helen Keller
I'm human and flawed.
Independent, adventurous, traveler, hitchhiker, not so much into girly stuff like shopping, make-up or being pampered during my travels.
Being on the road is a major component of my life. I regain inner peace only when I'm moving. I'm not afraid to live my life according to my passions and subordinate it to travels. I have realized it long time ago that living the way the society wants you to live, ie. university, good job, getting married, having family etc. won't work for me.
I usually hitchhike, thanks to which my travels aren't very expensive and I can travel longer. But here money is just the gravy. What I cherish the most is the opportunity to get to know people I might have otherwise never met; to talk with locals that live along the roads I hitchhike; to discover places that have yet not became attractions spoiled by hordes of tourists, to practise all four foreign languages I speak.
I prefer to spend money on doing things and seeing things rather than having things. My other ways of spending less on travels are couchsurfing and dumpster diving.
Why do I write? I'm a voracious reader myself, always surrounded by books or reading other travel blogs. Each of the stories I stumbled upon somehow inspired me to go my way, to make my dreams come true. Now, after having lived on the road for over two years and experiencing things I once knew just from books I feel it'd be pointless to keep my impressions just to myself. I want to learn new things and inspire other people.
