On the „road“ again!

Well actually we are more on the railway at the moment and later on in the airplane. Anyway we had our thoughts about definitions – Backpacking for example: We travel with a backpack, and hence we basically are backpackers. But we also use a 1st class ticket in the Deutsche Bahn. Real backpackers would hitchhike. Of course we don’t stick to the luxury side of life but if we can get more comfort for a few dollars we are most probably willing to take it even if it might shorten our trip a bit. On the other hand if there are no amenities it’s no big deal. Maybe the term ‘individual travelling’ fits better.
Still our backpacks show us off as backpackers. So how about the hitchhiking? In our next destination is no unique sign for it (At home it’s thumb up, in Ethiopia you show a finger per passenger). Also it’s said that people don’t do it at all. But because criminality is very low it’s no risk to give it a try. Sounds interesting, no? And now the big question: which country are we going to visit? Maybe I can give you a little hint:  we hope that we can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about “gangnam style” very soon…
