Very helpful information about traveling around. I will be traveling with my Fiancé, and these are great bits of info for both of us to use!

This was fantastic! I feel much more comfortable with the idea of hitchhiking alone as a solo female traveler ! I never really thought this would be possible, but now, I’ve already downloaded the apps talked about in this course. I hope to try it without the apps after some more experience. Thanks for the course!
