After having made an intensive study of hitchhiking in Russia and the former USSR, this summer was the time to give it a try. The following is a report including pictures of this undertaking. First I would like to mention my personal motivations for this trip
- Improvement of my knowledge of spoken russian.
- Improvement of my knowledge of Russia and the Russians in general
- Adventure seeking
- Promotion of hitchhiking in Russia and the former countries of the USSR by westerners
