If you dream of hitch-hiking to far-off lands and unknown places, but are always pulled back to reality because of financial constraints, then we have some good news for you. Take a leaf out of this guy’s passport, and all you need to travel from one place to another is not really money, but some cans of chilled beer. Of course, because such trips are the best time to get to know people and make friends, but also because there would be people willing to trade those cans for some food and accommodation! Yes, the world works in mysterious ways, and some of them are an absolute delight!
Emmanuel Marshall reportedly hitchhiked from Edinburgh to Delhi in eight weeks, offering 120 cans of beer in exchange for food, transport and accommodation.
According to a Daily Mail report, Marshall hitchhiked through France, Germany, Bulgaria, Greece, Austria and the Czech Republic. A popular beer company funded the final 900-miles of his journey, which ended in India. While he asked for lifts and accommodation all through his journey, most people offered him without expecting anything in return. In fact, some were overwhelmed that he had something to offer them back.
Marshall is living the dream life of many, and spends his days travelling to distant lands. He funds these trips through his travel blog, which he has monetised.
Apparently, Marshall loves meeting new people and learning new things from them while he is travelling. And, interestingly, he had said that if he is at a place for two days, he’d rather spend time getting to know the people than go sight-seeing, because he believes the temples will always be there.
