Speaker A: I got interested in hitch-hiking after watching the famous film ‘Euro Tour’. It’s a hilarious comedy where a group of friends travel around Europe looking for adventure. I got inspired by the film and decided to try it with my friends. The film offers good advice — like how to find really cheap plane tickets or a hostel to spend the night in. We followed the same route from the film while hitch-hiking and I must say we loved every minute of it!
Speaker B: Hitch-hiking may look like a romantic and exciting way of traveling for some people, but I really don’t think it is. When I travel, I like to do it in comfort. I always plan my travel thoroughly, reserving hotel rooms well in advance. Now it’s even possible to buy tickets online to popular museums so I don’t have to waste precious time queuing. With hitch-hiking, everything is very spontaneous and decided on the spot. That’s not for me.
Speaker С: I’ve never tried hitch-hiking myself, but my friends hitch-hiked last year across Australia and they say there are some ups and downs about this kind of traveling. The advantages are you’re free to go wherever you want, and you’re always in the moment, seeing things that ordinary tourists miss because they’re always focused on their plan. As for possible cons, hitch-hiking can be dangerous. For instance, my friends got mugged at gunpoint.
Speaker D: Hitch-hiking is the only kind of traveling I can afford. All my classmates are planning their gap years thinking about all the exciting places they’ll go and the fascinating sights they’ll see. But me — I don’t have enough money to pay for a posh gap year. Instead I spent my savings on a really expensive laptop that I’ll need at university. So hitch-hiking is the only way I can afford to have a great time before I settle into my studies at college.
Speaker E: Many people think that hitch-hiking is just a way for cheap kids to save some money while traveling across the country. Just put your thumb out and get a lift. I disagree. Many drivers who tend to stop to pick up hitch-hikers are friendly and talkative people bored making a long trip. They just want to have a nice chat to pass the time. The drivers help the hitch-hikers, and the hitch-hikers help the drivers. Everyone benefits this way!
Speaker F: I’m an experienced hitch-hiker and I enjoy this way of travelling immensely. I’ve gone to really a lot of different great places hitch-hiking, and it’s saved me much money. If you want to enjoy it, you need to observe a few simple rules. First, be polite and talkative. Second, you must write your destination on a big piece of paper and hold it up while waiting for a lift. Be friendly and patient as well. This will definitely help you on the road.
