Ludovic Hubler is a Frenchman who, in 2003, set off around the world with one goal – to travel all of it by hitchhiking.

This is it ! The circle has finally been closed. 5 years, passed day by day since leaving the Alps, and now here I am back at my point of departure, at the same place I left on January 1st, 2003. When I started out I was 25 years old. Now I’m 30.

This personal account of his experience is a must-read for the intrepid traveller in all of us; a fascinating account complete with philosophical musings and statistics on his journey. He has two words for the world: “never again”… but it’s not what you think!
