Welcome to the Tarmac Tales!!!
The purpose of this blog is to share positive experiences from hitch-hiking adventures around the globe.
While it is becoming a less popular way to get around due a lot of negative press, there are still a substantial amount of people who use hitch-hiking as a cost effective way of travelling.
It is a great way to meet new, interesting people; experience fresh, sometimes quirky, personal perspectives; put yourself in social situations with people you may not necessarily engage with normally; generally get out there and experience the joys of the unexpected open road; it's also an enviromentally friendly way to travel - for the eco nuts out there.
So I ask you all to share something that highlights the true nature of thumbing a lift. Be it just meeting someone extraordinary (or ordinary), a serendipitous event or something you would like to share with others.
