About

Roving Snails are Boris (Bulgaria) and Marta (Spain) have been travelling since they can remember, and are on the road together since the day they met, 3 and something years ago.

They are currently travelling east looking for an overland route from Bulgaria to India through the labyrinths of Asia, trying to determine if the subcontinent is indeed on Earth or in a pararel universe.

After almost 14 months hitchhiking, they have reached South East Asia, but still claim to be on their way to India. There is a small chance they'll make it, if it's the road's will.

Wish them luck! or follow their updates them via RovingSnails.com or in facebook and @RovingSnails twitter.

Travel experience

Mission Asia - after one year hitchhiking from Bulgaria towards India we have reached China...there is a long way to go!

Winter travels. On our way East, we spent a full winter on the road, through Anatolia and the Caucasus. We made it to Cappadocia under the snow and to Svaneti over ice.

Travelling through the lands of the Midnight sun. Crossing the Arctic Circle with the sun ahead and the moon behind, after 8 days of non-stop hitchhiking transit through Europe. Travelling in Lapland and till North Cape without a tent.

Moroccan travels. We hitched out of the boiling Saharan dunes, huddled in the refrigarator of a yoghurt truck - North African sauna.

Europe feels home. We have crossed our continent in all directions.

Pirates in the UK. We survived England for a year on a traveller's budget. Opened our own squat, just to be promoted to property guardians of the very place we occupied where we lived dumpster diving and getting ready for Asia. It was in England that hitchhiked a boat for the first time, in the narrow channels to Wales.

Bulgarian foraging. We have hitched around Bulgaria and have walked out of our city (Sofia) in all possible directions, searching for the magic of herbs and hiking hidden paths to unexpected places.
