    Some people dream of sitting on a beach in Tahiti or sailing around the world.

    Benjamin's travel dream was to hitchhike around the USA for a year (his Nana thought it was a pretty curious dream as well).

    He wanted to meet people from all walks of life and learn about the world through a simple adventure.

    The video took 3 months to shoot and 2 years to create (although Benjamin's a hitchhiker and wasn't slaving away for 12 hours a day or anything :).

    This video is just the start of his adventures to live an exciting, wise life and you can find free lessons to help you start traveling at http://www.adventuresauce.com/2012/03/vimeo/.
