Akilina's Travels

About Me/ Contact

1176175_10151568871736027_486645745_nI am a hitchhiker/hostel worker who braves the road alone. I am currently just beginning my travels with only 21 countries hitchhiked through, although I plan to head out to several more in the future. I am currently working on a project to inform the world of the kindness of strangers, rather than the dangers, and hopes to share my stories with all who will listen. Depending on complete strangers to get around Europe, with no money in my pockets, I am determined to one day return the favor to others whom I may come upon in the future who are in need.

    I’ve been reading through your posts for a little while now. And I just realized i’ve met you in person. Back in Bucharest in mid/late July I believe. You worked at a hostel right near the hospital, right?
    I remember talking about Homer, and your adventure as an Au pair. I can’t imagine you remember me, working in a hostel you meet so many people. But I was the bald beared Canadian guy on his way to Greece and the rainbow gathering there.

    Funny how small even the internet can be!

      OMG, I think I do remember you! I asked you about getting into the UK, right? Wow, much has changed since then! I was quite negative in Romania…I hadn’t found myself yet, it wasn’t until after I left that *UH* hostel that I learned more about myself and the universe! Hitchhiking taught me A LOT!

        I think that was because I had a British passport yea? You didn’t seem so negative.. But perhaps thats because even a negative foreigner in Romania seems happy compared to most people, ;D
        That’s good though! Much has changed for myself as well, though I haven’t gone so far away from there. Seems like you’ve been having some good adventuring.

    yea, I am a bit stuck in a rut right now…I keep going back and fourth between running down to Central America, or heading back up to Alaska…eh…your right about the foreigner thing, the Romanians seem to be very aware that people are watching at all time, so they dont seem to let loose much lol…BTW…it was super shitty getting into the UK lol
