On July 17, 2015, I am shining my wellies to start my hitchhiking adventure across the USA. I hope to complete items from my hitchhiking bucket list with the help of friendly strangers. Let me know where else I should go in the U.S. using the hashtag “#hitchBOTinUSA”.

  1. This summer, I am hitting the road once again. I have decided to visit the United States of America and hichhike my way accross the nation starting in Boston on July 17th! To shake things up, I will be packing my very own bucket list of places to see and monuments to visit. I am counting on the help of strangers I meet along the way to help me cross off the items before I reach my final destination in California. I wonder what I will see first...
  2. To celebrate my next adventure, my family hosted a BBQ in my honour. I may not have eaten anything, but I was full with love.

  4. Launch Party at the Peabody Essex Museum, Boston - July 16, 2015

  5. I asked my friends at the Peabody Essex Museum to prepare their red carpet for my arrival on July 16th.
  6. I then asked my friends on social media to help me create my bucket list. They gave me many ideas:
  7. My family helped me pick a few, and with that, we created my final bucket list!

  11. I shined my wellies, packed my bucket list and charger, and headed for Pearson International Airport. My friends at Air Canada always take such great care of my co-creators and I. They also have top-notch USB plugs meaning I was plugged in and ready to take flight. Next stop, Boston!

  13. The flight went off without a hitch. Once landed in Boston, I had decided to get some rest before my big launch party at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. Nothing like a little recharge before a night of mingeling and selfies with my friends!
