I'm thinking about my next move from my hometown, Besançon. I started hitchhiking when I wanted to go back home after school before the bus was arriving, so I was around 15-16 years old. My biggest HH trip was in Canada, when I crossed two time the country in 6 months. I also did 4 HH trip around Europe.

Guys were smoking pot
Well, usually I go out when it's the case, but I was lazy waiting as it was holiday day with no traffic. So I was smoking as well (passively), with the driver and his friend for 40 minutes … My bad.

From Sofia to France
I told the guy I was going to Serbia. He said he is going to France. I said I'm going to France. What a luck! He was actually moving to Barcelona. We had a really cool trip together. So nice guy. I camped near Torino during a break for the night. We then took small roads in France accross Montgenevre towards Orange. Amazing.

The guy was AWESOME! He is into climbing and environmental protection. He invited me to come back and visit him.
Fast & Generous
My driver is driving suuuuuper fast. I'm a bit scary. He invites me for lunch and then we visit his couch store. There is a lot of people visiting him for chai, and they are really interested about me. We talk soccer and end up by organizing a soccer game for the evening. So I did, helped my team win, and finally stayed with him and his students roomates.

Stuck in the truck
My truck driver invited me for food, as it is usual in Turkey. Then, he had to unload two times. He told me it was fast. The first time took one hour, so I asked him to let me out before the next one so I can continue. He didn't, and brought me to a super bad spots, so I had to stay with him. It took 2 hours, as some guy was not here with a machine to unload. I found some… (read on in Trip)

Taşucu → Kutahya
I understood that my driver invited me for breakfast and then continue his trip in my direction. I go with him, but tell him I don't drink hot stuff and I'm not hungry… He makes me taking a juice. We try to communicate with all his friends at the cafe, and one of them is finding my friend's name by calling with his phone :O Then, my driver start to play cards… I pay my juice and I escape.
You Will Drink Chai
Well; this time I couldn't refuse Chai offered by my driver. And the view was fantastic in the cafe we stopped.
Sleeping in the truck
It was a very loooong drive. I went everywhere with the driver, as he was loading, unloading and again. We slept in a farm at the countryside near Afyon.
