Would you like a spontaneous encounter with a stranger in the midst of your day-to-day life? If the answer is yes, then Urban Hitchhiking is for you! Created by urban-space-mastermind Lauri Jäntti and myself, Urban Hitchhiking is all about unexpected encounters in an environment where collective rush often hinders the mental space from extemporaneous meetings with new people – the city.
“I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.”
“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.”
Me and an old high-school acquaintance of mine ran into each other on a sunny summer day in Helsinki, Finland. We exchanged some words which lead into me joining Uuno Elias a couple of days later for a podcast in his studio. This composer and piano tuner lets his friends and strangers define the topics of the conversation, so this time it was all about people, fear and the unknown. If interested in discovering more, please listen to Uuno Eliaksen Talk Show (16. jakso): Sissi Korhonen (in Finnish).

What I now see mostly as the best possible opportunity for meeting new people and discovering cultures still unknown to me, initially started out also as a journey about new places and self discovery. The focus of the trip has shifted from something I want to do into something I feel I need to do, mostly because of the urge for sharing local stories. This is all still coming up as soon as I get on the saddle again, but for now, here’s an article about the first part of the trip. Written by the Finnish Embassy in Argentina.

I’m currently cycling through Latin America, from Argentina to Mexico. The yellow dots are the planned route. I started the journey in Tierra del Fuego, and after cycling through Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Ecuador (and bits of Peru), I’m now dancing salsa in Cali, Colombia.
