The 29 year old hitchhiker

We met a hitchhiker yesterday.

I thought his name was Ludvig,
but it was Ludevic Ludovic.

Makes you feel French pronouncing it, right?
That's coz he IS French hehe.

He's been hitchhiking for 3 or 4 years
and his planned trip around the world
is supposed to last 5 years.

He has been all over the world
including the Antartica, where he steered a ship;
Galapagos, where he saw a bigass giant turtle;
Indonesia, where he was almost arrested;
Africa, where he was asked to stay with another man's wife;
Brazil, where he loved the laid back life;
and... wow... I can't even remember the rest.

There were just so many places,
So many pictures
So many words
So many stories.

I asked silly silly questions, like:
Has anyone tried to kidnap him?
Has anyone screamed when he approached them for a ride,
and hit him repeatedly with their handbags,
screaming "Go away! Go away!"?

Unfortunately his answers were "No", so no fun.
Hehe.

Here is a man who's living on the edge
Chasing his dreams

And will probably die a happy sea lion.
