Traveling is not a big deal. Everybody can do that. You do not have to be a millionar and you do not have to buy a package from a travel agency. Internet is making traveling super easy. And because I do not print my own money (that's what lots of my friends actually think) here are some useful links, that made my travels so much easier and also saved me quite a lot of money. 

HITCHWIKI - The Hitchhiker's Guide to Hitchhiking the World

This website is the Hitchhiker's Bible. My friend Julien showed it to me, when we were hitchhiking from Paris to Trondheim in January 2013. You can find general information about hitchhiking there, how to hitchhike in different countries, basic vocabulary fo hitchhiking in different languages, tips for safety etc. I mostly use the map where other hitchhikers share the tips for good places for hitchhiking. It is pretty useful if you arived to a city and you do not know where to go to get out of it again.

COUCHSURFING- 'THE page for free accommodation'


couch-surf
gerund or present participle: couchsurfing

'stay temporarily in a series of other people's homes, typically making use of improvised sleeping arrangement'

Couchsurfing is about more than just crashing on a spare couch or bed in a guest room. It is about getting to know different cultures, food, languages and making friends all over the world.


MAPS.ME - mapy pro cely svet

I am not a big fun of smart phones. I actually do not like people who can not read maps and just stare on the screen while walking the street and eventuelly crash into a lamp :) But this mobile app for Android that provides offline maps is actually quite handy. It can save you a lots of time and nerves while trying to figure out where you are and where do you want to go.
