Out of sheer curiosity, Petrina flew to Stockholm with only $200. Despite being entirely broke, she decided to attempt hitchhiking all the way back to Kuala Lumpur. In this talk, she shares what it was like sleeping at petrol stations, digging through trash for food, escaping indecent drivers and depending on the kindness of strangers. Watch the video to find out how she makes it home.

Petrina Thong, Solo Traveller

Petrina is a freelance scriptwriter and has no exact travel plans yet. A different continent next, for sure, after her months-long hitchhiking trip from Europe to Asia. But planning isn’t her thing. And that’s why she freelances. So when the urge to leave hits, she’s gone.

Zafigo is dedicated to the woman traveller, offering tips, guides and insights to make travel – be it for work or leisure – better, safer and more interesting. Focusing on selected cities in Asia and the Middle East, we also serve as a platform and community for women to share their experiences and knowledge with fellow travellers.
