One Year Ago I Started Hitchhiking Alone Through Africa
My name is Monika, I am 24 years old hitchhiker from Poland. Since one year I am travelling across Africa by hitchhike. I started my journey in march from Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt. From that moment I am not using planes or buses to cross from one city to another.
During this year I have spend 0,00$ for accomodation. Usually I am sleeping in my tent, police stations, churches or accepting invitations from local people. During this one year I have never pay for the accommodation. Sometimes I am also “working for food and accommodation”.
I have met thousands of amazing people who can share with you last things that they have but also a lot of bad ones.
In Kenya they accused me on terrorism and I spend few days in prison, someone robbed me in Lusaka etc.
I crossed 12 African countries (Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Swaziland, South Africa, Botswana). Right now I am in Zambia and my plan is to continue my journey through West Africa and reached Europe by land.
Wish me luck.
