Starting in July 2015 two young women from Poland, Wioletta Gluza and Izabela Turaj, are on a journey to Rediscover Kindness as they hitch hike through 4 continents, 38 countries and cover more than 75 000 kilometers.
They believe that this life changing adventure will truly make a difference not only in their lives but also in the lives of those who share road with them.
They are on a hitch-hiking trip around the world with Polaroid camera, and will share these images as they travel.
When I first visited New Zealand 40 years ago I hitchhiked my way around, and like Wioletta and Izabela I experienced incredible kindness along the way.
People who went out of their way to deliver me safely to a destination, people who invited me to stay in their homes.
I in turn learnt much about New Zealand, about Maori and was able to help and give back when I stayed.
