Re: Photographer and filmer needs to get from Europe to America...

I got plenti of time, because I got about 1 and a half years... so that would be no problem, I just start in september in spain, that means Ill not get back home from there.. maybe ill go to the wilderness of spain meanwile...

charles boorman doesnt hitchhike... but ill fill this gap... try as long as it takes to get on a ship... It always works somehow... patiens is the best friend of a hitchhiker...

Thanks for the info and the interest, if youre interested in my projekt: "Hitchhiking Through Paradise" on facebook, with photos videos and blogs... (almost every photo is made with a cellphonecam...

Cheers and Thanks,

Gabor

Re: Photographer and filmer needs to get from Europe to America...

for finding a yacht at this time sept-nov,the best is www.crewseekers.co.uk,you will have to pay a subscription,but finding a yacht is virtually guarenteed if you are able to contribute a little towards expenses,the limit is 15 per day.

Greets,

Gabor
some captains might consider taking you for free......as a girlfriend

otherwise you might find that you have a lot of competition from people happy to contribute basic expenses.

best of luck
