Hitchhiking to Turkey-Georgia Land Border

Hitchhiking to Turkey-Georgia Land Border

Earlier this year, I took an extended break from work and used the time off to vist places I always wanted to see. I bought a one-way ticket to Cambodia and off I went alone. 6 months, 8 books, over 10 countries, hundreds of hours in transit and thousands of kilometres later, I’m finally calling it a day. I’ve had friends asked me why I did what I did but truthfully, I wasn’t sure either. I guess I wanted to see the world. I wanted to embrace the complexity of the different cultures and customs of every corner of the world. And I wanted to do it while I was young. While I’m still willing to do it frugally – staying at dorms, taking overnight buses, Couchsurfing, hitchhiking and all.

Even though I currently have a black hole in my bank account, I have no regrets at all. The interesting people I’ve met, the conversations I’ve had, the – both beautiful and ugly – sights I’ve seen… they will stay with me for awhile.

Now that I’m back, I have the time to go through all the photos (9000+) and pick out the best ones. Thus, I’ll be blogging regularly in the next couple of months. There are stories to be told too, so stay tuned for updates!

  1. Nice. I am myself at the end of my 3 months sabbatical break, travelling the Balkans for the past 90 days, so I can understand what you mean exactly. Love forward to seeing the photos!

    • Thanks! I’m sure it was a rewarding experience! I would love to visit the Balkans but I skipped it this time for Turkey.

      I’ve followed your blog and would be looking forward to your photos too!
