This journey has now been turned into a book, The Boy Who Was Afraid of the World, which you can get from or most major online retailers.

Don't you hate it when people take pictures of their own face and post them on the internet? Here are 1006 pictures that I took of my own face. I managed to get the French flag back to front.

I hitchhiked through 24 countries. My journey was pointless. It was one of the best things that I have ever done.

When people asked me what I did and where I lived, I told them that I was homeless and unemployed. But very happy.

The photos in this video are not representative of the time spent on my journey or who I spent it with. Sometimes I felt like taking photos, sometimes I didn't.
