About Serial Hikers

Our hitchhiking adventure

Our adventure began in 2016, in a context of somewhat gloomy Parisian life – after the terrorist attacks and a professional resignation. For us, it was the trigger, the perfect moment: the idea of quitting everything to travel the world together, without any time limit, began to germinate!…

Once our decision was made, we started to dream of a unique trip, a journey at our own image, that matches our convictions and expectations: an alternative and ecological trip, hitchhiking, without plane… So we left on October 17, 2016 with our backpacks, our dreams, thumbs up on the side of the road!

Margaux
Explorer

Behind the keyboard, it’s me! Curious by nature but a little lazy, I learned to walk very late according to my parents but since then, I never stop moving! After a master’s degree in Biology at the University of Versailles, I worked for 3 years in Clinical Trials for the pharmaceutical industry. Passionate about my job, I traveled all over France to monitor sick patients. I loved it – but not as much as exploring the world!

Julien
Resourceful guy

Behind the lens, it’s him: a tall guy by his size (1m85!) and his thirst of adventure. He also worked in Clinical Trials (that’s how we met!), after going to Ireland and Wales thanks to the Erasmus exchange program. Besides cycling and model aircraft, Julien likes to hike in the mountains, in total autonomy and without a guide.
