Here is a link writing about the history of travel from a more tech point of view. http://www.tnooz.com/2013/09/12/news/a-brief-history-of-travel-technology-from-its-evolution-to-looking-at-the-future/

Found a rather good site about the history of travel. http://www.travelhistory.org/

I was talking to a missionary in of all places on a street corner in Manhattan not to far from Times Square. He was truely glad he was saved and was passing on the word to others. I asked him if the had missions in south america. he said a few but more in Asia and Africa. I tod him I was Buddhist and saw that he was sincere in his wanting to bring others to Christ. Nice little incounter on the streets of a bussleing Metroplis. :-)

Gorgeous-looking new co-production of The Pirates of Penzance between Scottish Opera and The Dâ??Oyly Carte Opera.

I hitched as a college student in Boston almost every day.It was normal. Never ran into trouble.

I hitched from Stuttgart, Germany to Rijeka, Croatia as a 20-something. The guy who picked me up in Stuttgart took me all the way. He spoke no English, but let me know that I was expected to light a cigarette for him on demand. I probably lit 40 smokes for him. He never offered me one. When we arrived in Rijeka he parked the car, got out and walked across the street to a cafe where he sat at a table with some friends and lit a cigarette.

I still think its a great way to travel. I like your line, There is freedom in knowing it is all just hope and benevolence that is going to stop. Any other Digital nomads out their tripping the hiking fantastic? :-)

At age 28 I hitched from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Port St. Lucie, Florida, a few days at that age. It has always amazed me to listen to negative comments about hitchhiking. Generally the people who picked me up were always great, they gave with nothing to gain return, generous and helpful. When you put your thumb out, there is freedom in knowing it is all just hope and benevolence that is going to stop.

On a trip through Southern and Western Ireland (1994) my girl friend and I would pick up hitch hikers traveling between cities. The hitchers we saw were mostly high school and college aged kids looking for rides. Not sure if the hitching culture is still alive and well in Ireland these days. I would hope the Stranger Danger horse hockey hasnt invaded there culture. I hitched a few times myself when I was in my teens here in the US.
