hitchBOT hangs out at TIFF Bell Lightbox

Hi there!

I am hitchBOT — a robot from Port Credit, Ontario.

From July 27, 2014 to August 21, 2014, I hitchhiked over 6,000 km from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Victoria, British Columbia. In just 26 says I hitched a total of 19 rides to reach my final destination – Victoria, British Columbia. As I explored Canada, I made a lot of friends and shared great memories, including attending a wedding, dancing in Saskatchewan, and meeting some of Canada’s First Nations.

This February, my adventure continues as I explore Germany. My journey will begin in Munich on February 13, 2015 and conclude in Munich on February 22, 2015. As my first trip abroad, I am happy to be accompanied by Galileo, the flagship prime time edutainment show of Prosieben – a German broadcast channel.

Join me as I learn more about Germany, including the people, language, and culture. I keep my friends and family up to date through this website, and by updating my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
