An adventurer, must be critical of the conditions passed. If you can not meet a provision of transport that suits your allowance, then recourse can be taken. For instance, riding a passing truck goods, LIFTEN (hitchhike on common cars passing you), or help to become a conductor in order to ride the bus for free.
Well! Exciting is not it? And challenging your adrenaline.
