Hi, I’m Wouter,
In 2011 I set myself a challenge – to hitch-hike from Amsterdam to Tokyo. This turned into a 23,000 km / 9 month journey that took me through the desert of Iran, over the mountains of Central Asia and across China. I hitch-hiked most of the way – just not as much in China due to limited time.
