Chris Awake started in his home country of Lithuania with a jar of sesame butter, traveled across Europe picking up other trinkets along the way and swapping them with people for items from that region of the world.
“Some of these people I knew already, some of them were people my friends knew and most of them we’re people I met on the road, while hitchhiking or I just said Hi to. It started as a fun game at first, but got quite emotional since I received dog tags, in Paris. I hope this might inspire you to Travel More – and maybe Exchange Items with People You Meet – for me it was all about Connecting These People Together.”
“The trip to/until London took me 80 days. I spent the holidays with my family in L.A. and recently came back home to Vilnius, Lithuania. Expenses during those 80 days – 1150€ – quite cheap travel session due to hitchhiking, couchsurfing and nice people feeding me in general.”
