While hitchhiking in China we were treated by one of our drivers to this horrible snack revered by all Chinese. Take a look at my first attempt at eating a chicken foot.

A handy tutorial on how to play a traditional Spanish card game called Chinchón. While in Kazakhstan we taught our Kazakh friends how to play Chinchón in return for them showing us one of their local card games.

During our stay in Karaganda, Kazakhstan we had the chance to listen to the angelic voice of a lovely Polish lady we befriended there. Enjoy her interpretation of Ave Maria.

Introduction

We created this page first and foremost because we love travelling. Our passion for it consumes a large part of our lives and reaching out to like-minded individuals just seems like a natural progression.

We wanted this page to be a shared experience. It is our hope that by creating this platform by which we, and others, could share our experiences we would all be able to add the common pool of knowledge that will help us all in our further travels. We also wanted to be entertained, because nothing piques our interest like a tale from the road. The people one meets and the places one goes are infinitely stranger when travelling, we are encouraging people to share these with the world.
 
So we have decided to create a two part blog for all those interested in travelling and more specifically hitch-hiking. In our blog we intend to include practical hitch-hiking information with handy tips to help you get started.
