Hitchhiking in the Sahara

It was freezing cold in Canada so I hopped on a plane and moved to Paris. Then somehow Paris decided to get white. The next thing I know: I’m hitchhiking across the Sahara.

I was living on the sea side of Vancouver Island for few months when the rain started to take more and more space in the small village of Tofino. Looking at ways to get away from it I booked an 200$ flight from Vancouver to London. I had in the head of hitchhiking down to Paris and spend the winter there.

After 2 months in Paris, Christmas time came and I was around cold and rainy days again. I started Hitchhiking south. 1 month later I was in the Sahara.

Sahara is the largest hot desert on earth. Most of us will think about the dunes when they will hear Sahara but it is much more than that. This North-African dry spot is home of mountains, rock field and the purest beach you could think of.

Ironically I’m now in Senegal where I’m trying to get away from the warm days.

Here’s some photos of my European/Saharan

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
