After working as an English teacher in Istanbul for a few months, I decided to head to the UK to visit my family. Taking advantage of the summer, I made a decision to hitchhike despite having only one sleeping bag and one blanket between two people.. and no tent. Instead, my bag was overladen with winter clothing, including my suit. We hitchhiked around 4,000 km through eight countries in nine days, spending a total of €42.54 between the both of us. We managed to visit a couple of friends, see some protests, walk the streets of Venice, and swim in the Mediterranean Sea.
