Travel The World On $7

That's what Frenchman Jeremy Marie has been doing, using his hitchhiking thumb and online resources such as CouchSurfing since 2007 to barter his way through Europe to the former Eastern Block, the Middle East, Africa, Central America, and now the U.S. He was in L.A. and Santa Monica recently, and met with the editors of the SMDP to tell his story. No doubt he will turn his experience into a book, or an "anthropological" documentary -- like fellow Frenchman Antoime de Maximy's J'irai dormir à Hollywood.
