My book status




My book status



A fter 5 years of hitchhiking around the world, I’ve written a book. It's a guide for anyone who is tempted to travel alone or simply want to read what was it like to hitchhike solo across the world on a small budget. The book is not written as the adviser “you have to do this or that”. The tips are shared through my personal stories and all the good and bad experiences. The book is a great "guide" even if you don’t like hitchhiking or plan to travel alone but enjoy reading real-life stories.


The book has 21 chapters and each chapter covers a different topic - from what’s like to hitchhike from Croatia to Polynesia (twice), how to hitchhike numerous boats and a helicopter, how much money is needed for a five-year journey and how to make money while traveling. There are chapters about sex, love and everything in between – along with the fears, risks and a psychological aspect of it all. The end of the book takes an unexpected and quite incredible turn. I hope to self-publish the book in April 2019. in the English language.


Currently, the book is in the hands of an editor and it still needs to go through the process of proofreading, designing, formatting and publishing which is costly. If you like what you see and want to support the making of this book (pre-order), you can do it easily via Paypal by clicking HERE.

None of your support will go unnoticed. This small “crowdfunding” campaign is also the chance to pre-order the book for any amount of money. The price is totally up to you. There is no limitation so anyone can get a book as your pre-orders will help me publish my work. Logically, a small contribution will get you a digital copy and a bigger one will get you a printed edition. Please send me your e-mail contact after you've made your contribution/pre-order.


Thank you for supporting my work, thank you for your time and your continuous love.
