People who have never hitchhiked think it’s very dangerous and people who has loves it. I have hitchhiked in Israel, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Philippines and India and I never felt that it was dangers. Think about it, I’ve been in the care with hundres of people where some people I still have contact with. There is no better way to learn about traveling the hitchhiking.
India is huge contingent and we went from Kathmandu to Calcutta, with train to Chennai, hitchihiked across to Bangalore, to Goa, inland to Delhi and up to Dharmsala. I can’t describe in words how much I learned about India and what the trip did to me. I feel very lucky to have that experience.
