hitchhiking is amazing. its so much fun and you can meet some really nice and generous people. i hitched across europe a while ago and ended up sleeping in peoples houses adn being given loads of free meals.
there will be times when you don't get a lift for ages and that can get really depressing, especially if its raining and cold, but when you do finally get picked up its awesome.
as much fun as it is be sensible, if you dont like the look of the person whose offering you a life, you dont have to take it.
such a liberating feeling when you wake up that you don't know where you're going to end up at the end of the day.
definately do it, you'll have loads of fun
