How to hitchhike around the world

By With 0 comments

Hitchhiking: traveling without paying for it. The short and objective explanation above indicates usurpation, a benefit without offering something in return, an act of detriment to current social standards.

“Hi, where are you from?” Impossible not to start a dialogue with this question in Jordan. But the most charming were the smiles right after my reply: “I’m from Brazil.” First of all, let’s rewind the tape, to find the reason for this trip.

Bangkok suffocated me, consumed me, took my strength. I needed to get away from this polluted atmosphere of automobiles and concrete, but for just one weekend, the destination could not be far. Koh Samet appeared as the ideal. An island 200 km from the capital, with its clear and warm waters. After work on Friday…

How I hate to receive guests!

The year was 2013. Unhappy with the direction my career was taking, I decided to stop complaining and take action.

Christmas. Apart of my childhood, before my cousin had not yet destroyed the image of Santa Claus from my imaginary, I never gave much importance to that occasion. At least not to the gift exchanges. I must say that I miss the huge meals, the family reunion, the special tv programs, the old routine. When…
