Yeah.. we did it. From July 9th to July 23th I was traveling with my friend Oksana by hitchhiking to the Atlantic Ocean. We visited Rzeshow (Poland, July 9), Vienna, Saltzburg (Austria, July 10), Munich (Germany, July 11), Zurich, Bern (Switzerland, July 12), Lyon, Toulouse (France, July 13), Bilbao, La Coruna, the Atlantic Ocean (July, 14-18) and I was back through Paris, Strasbourg, Frankfurt, Dresden, Krakow, crossed border Poland-Ukraine on July 23.

It was being really really great time!! Every day was full on so many good activities. Sometimes we were lost, sometimes sleeping in the park (in Munich), near road (Santander), at home (Toulouse), hostel (Bern)..

" ...Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947. So let's just move on to some of my favourite tips from Mahatma Gandhi.
1. Change yourself. "You must be the change you want to see in the world." "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves." If you change yourself you will change your world. If you change how you think then you will change how you feel and what actions you take. And so the world around you will change. Not only because you are now viewing your environment through new lenses of thoughts and emotions but also because the change within can allow you to take action in ways you wouldn't have - or maybe even have thought about - while stuck in your old thought …
