Hitchiking USA for 4 months took me and my friend Simon to places we never planned on going. It also put on our path this School Bus running on Veggie oil in which we stayed for 3 weeks across Colorado and Utah with a group of enlightened hippies.
This video is so precious because it is the first travel film I ever did. It is the first stone of a personal pyramid. It was entirely made and edited during the 3 weeks in the bus so 100% powered by vegetable oil. So yeah, it’s almost powered by fries and chips. And there is a lot in America. I exported the movie as it was the last day when we finally left the bus. I always thought about doing a version 2 but it’s hard for me to touch it. It’s raw and I like it like that.

Someone told me about Iceland Air and their “Stay over” solution to stay up to a week in Iceland for no additional flight costs. So this is exactly what I did, I booked a flight to Iceland when I came back to Boston from Paris in july 2014. It’s pretty much like taking the bus with a transit ticket! I left Paris with a one person tent, my cameras and a saucisson. All I knew was from my quick research 24h before departure, when I decided to just aim for the most popular trail in the South. Close to the airport, the trail is “moderate” and beautiful with many different landscapes to cross in just 4 to 5 days. Perfect for my one week stay over.
Tout bon jeune voyageur qui se respecte sent l’appel de la route a un moment ou un autre. C’est ce qui m’est arrivé à l’aube de mes 25 ans lorsque j’ai décidé de tout lâcher pour traverser les états-unis d’est en ouest en stop avec mon ami Simon. Un binôme de choc qui s’est retrouvé dans bien des situations. La chance était avec nous et nous a particulierement souris lorsque un groupe d’illuminés nous on ramassés dans un school bus roulant a l’huile végétale a la sortie de Moab au Colorado. Notre nouvelle famille pour 3 semaines durant lesquelles on respirait le bonheur et la friture.
