This first adventure kicked off in early May 2010, carving a path from London through Europe then into Africa, hugging the east coast all the way down to Cape Town. The good will of absolute strangers carried The Magic Thumb all the way to South Africa where the country was gripped with World Cup fever. The story certainly didn't stop there either… The Thumb still had to get back to England.
The unpredictable nature of Hitch Hiking- having no plans other than to shut that front door and head off, rewarded the first instalment of this trilogy with an abundance of unique discoveries, characters and shenanigans.
