I enjoyed the daily routine of waking up, cooking some beans on my stove and making my way to the road to try and catch another ride going further East. I hitched from England to Africa, from France to Romania, from Albania to Azerbaijan; multi-month hitchhiking expeditions that forced me to step out of my comfort zone, to meet amazing people and to get to grips with the local culture. I met my future wife in Iran and we fell in love whilst hitchhiking across the country together, crossing into Pakistan and then India — all through the power of thumb. Hitchhiking is, simply, one of the best ways to get around the globe and to actually connect with amazing people whilst travelling.
Hitchhiking has been around for decades and was first made popular in the times of the hippies.

Sometimes drivers will offer you a place to stay in their house but you cannot rely on this, take a tent or a camping hammock and make sure you have lots of warm gear as well as a good map.

For me, altitude is enough. Feel the burn. The Bhutanese believe a meal is unworthy without chili peppers. Often topped off with ezay , a salsa made from what else?
To eat dole like a local, dip the chili into salt, take a bite and then shove a handful of rice into your mouth. In Thimphu, Ama Restaurant and karaoke joint is a good place to ease into ema datse and its other incarnations. In Paro, try Dagmar. Cool off with dhachu. If you need a break from the burn, a glass of dhachu , the milky by-product of strained cow or yak cheese, will bring some relief. Also, hotels and restaurants catering to foreigners often cook a modified version of Bhutanese dishes to accommodate the chilip foreigner palate. Bhutan reformed from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy in , but the royals are still perceived as incarnations of gods.
Criticizing them as akin to blasphemy.
Eat farm-and-table. In spring, you might find fiddlehead ferns and leafy spinach sprinkled into curries; in summer, asparagus; in autumn, succulent matsutake mushrooms—and in winter, the warming potato and turnip curries topped over red rice will send you into a carb coma.
Be ready to sit on the floor, eat with your hands and consume your weight in red rice as the traditional stove bukhari keeps both you and a kettle of sweet milk tea naja or butter tea suja warm. Tip: Bring a bottle of K5 named after the current king or Special Courier whiskey as a gift for your hosts. Travel further for more cheese. Wash down the meal with locally brewed Red Panda lager, or spiced apple cider. Get a local SIM. Your cell phone may or may not get service in Bhutan, which has been cautiously embracing tech and telecoms being the last country in the world to legalize TV—in The Internet arrived soon after that, and now a majority of the population has a cell phone—usually with data—so Facebook, WhatsApp, and the Chinese WeChat are just as big here as in other places.
Wi-fi is available at most hotels, and at higher-end coffee shops in Paro and Thimphu. If you need to stay connected, ask your guide to buy you a Bhutanese SIM card. Go beyond ema datse. Bhutanese food is essentially ema datse three times daily, with slight variations: sometimes a piece of dried meat is thrown in, or the occasional root vegetable. There is a small but growing number of other options: In Thimphu, Cloud 9 is a burger and shake joint that serves quarter-pounders, creamy milk shakes and gluten-free vegetarian options.

In Paro, eat momos at Sonam Trophel. In most of the country, rice is eaten the same way as in other parts of South Asia: collect a morsel of food with the first two fingers and use your thumb to push food into your mouth. Clean your hands before the meal by rolling a bit of rice into a ball, then rubbing it into your palms and fingers. Then, make more balls out of the rice and dip it into your curry. This method also keeps your hands pretty dry. Know where your meat comes from. They get around this quandary by outsourcing butchering to India. A lot of the meat you eat was probably driven into Bhutan from the India-Bhutan border.
This is especially useful during auspicious months, when the government implements a meat ban, closing all shops for religious reasons. Homes have massive paintings of erect penises flanking the exterior; government offices sport large phallic dildos in the corridor; cab drivers have travel-size wooden ones on the dashboard, etc.
If you want help conceiving, join Bhutanese couples at the Chimi Lhakhang in the Punakha valley. After praying and making a donation, you might be instructed to walk around the temple holding a red penis replica. Beware gangs of dogs. Packs of dogs bark all night, especially anywhere near Paro and Thimphu town centers.
Bring earplugs. They bite, and a trip to the general hospital for a series of rabies shots is not an adventure I recommend. Chill out in a hot stone bath.
