In June 2015, Petrina Thong flew to Stockholm with nothing but a backpack, two sets of clothes, essentials and RM800!

Curious to hear how hitchhiking from Sweden to Malaysia was like, we sat down for a little chat with her.

Three months into her hitchhiking trip, she was broke. What's amazing is that the determined traveller decided to continue her trip, making her way from Europe back to Asia!

Her exciting journey took the Internet by storm, leading to major media organisations from not just Malaysia, but also the UK, New Zealand and Australia covering her story.

We're always on the lookout for more Malaysians with an interesting story to tell. If you know anyone that might fit the bill, here's how you can get in touch with us:
