Free Hugs

Juan Mann started the "Free Hugs" movement which has now been adopted in several places around the world. Here he is "off duty".

Here's a wikipedia article on the Free Hugs movement, and here's Juan's own site (

Have you ever been moved to hug a stranger?


  1. I'm from Texas. We tend to hug everybody!!!

  2. Hi Sally! Another hectic week; no, I’m not talking about the financial/economic crisis… ;))
    Hug strangers? It seems I've to go to Texas... ;))
    You look great on that «stinger suit»; prepared for the Portuguese Man-of-war... ;)
    Amazing to know that you've been to that resto in Plakias. Small world, after all...
    Meanwhile Blogtrotter has moved on to Mykonos! Hope you enjoy (Did you go there, from Istanbul?)! Have a great week!

  3. I remember seeing a Free Hugs session in Sydney, took pictures but never had a chance to post them before I left. I love the idea!

    Yes I remember hugging strangers, it works well for me.

  4. yes, I have. I love that shot. :-)

  5. shudder!

    (that's a bit of a blokey reaction, and may not necessarily reflect the views of the writer! ;-) )
