About

This one is for the kid with a dream.

My name is Finch, and I like to hitch hike.

I’ve always felt hitch hiking has been heavily stigmatized, and though little has changed in many people’s eyes, I can safely say it opened me up to a new way of thinking about life, how to approach people, how to deal with situations… the list goes on. It’s easy to glamorize but it definitely changed my life.

It’s frustrating to listen to people continuously criticizing it, and while bad things do happen (and I’ll never deny that), bad things can happen at any time. Luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough not to have to deal with anything negative on my travels.

I set up this blog to catalogue my travels and shed light on what it’s like to hitch hike, and provide tips to anyone who may be thinking of embarking on a similar adventure.

You’ll find links to my social accounts here too, so if you’re feeling cheeky you can check them out.

Feel free to get in contact too with any questions or suggestions you have! I endeavour to respond to every email as quickly as possible. Until then, keep her lit. And remember, it all changed the day I stood on the outskirts of Amsterdam and stuck the thumb out for the first time.

Peace, love and unity,

Finch.
