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.
I'm blogging in French about my trips here : voyagezvotrevie.wordpress.com

Sofia → Istanbul
Late in Istanbul
The truck driver went all around Istanbul. I had no idea where he wanted to dropped me off. I arrived east side of the city around 11.30pm… Tried to continue hitchhiking, without any luck, and finally found a place to sleep outside.

Speaking Spanish With Bulgarian Guy
He picked me up in Italy, near Venice, and we went directly to Vidin, in Bulgaria, driving almost all night. We tried communicate first with english, but found out we could actually do it better in Spanish. He lived there for couple of years.

People who were involved in the first Psychedelic festival in Estonia. One Estonian, one Canadian and one Swiss. It was a really nice ride. I'm glad that I waited 10 minutes under an heavy rain.

Kärde → Elva
A nice young jeweler picked me up. He hitchhiked himself from Estonia to Spain. He gave me one of his craft, a nice Icelandic Viking protection.
Armenian guy - Cigarette butt idea
His was driving too fast, and not looking the road while talking to me. Was throwing his cigarettes butt away from his window, and I finally got an idea how to prevent that on my next rides : having an ashtray (a box actually), to pick up cigarette butts while hitchhiking, and talk about it with my driver so they can add it to my collect if they smoke.

Smoking or driving ?
Well, the driver and his friend didn't choose in between. They started smoking weed and telling me about their party of last night, so I asked to get out of the car at the next village.

From Nowhere to Home
A young french dude, picked me up in a small village in the mountain, almost directly to my place. I got lucky as the traffic was very poor in that spot. And very nice ride!
He made a detour to put me in a good spot. He was going to run in the forest to train for a race.
A french women who was working with elderly people in Switzerland, saying it is way better than in France, as they have time to do their work properly and with good condition of work.
She picked me up in a not so good spot, and brought me in a perfect direction. She is living in Fribourg since ever, and wants to escape somewhere.

Xavier, a comic author, gave me a ride before he was going to a BD convention for 3 days.
Strangest guy ever. A polish guy who was speaking to me in a mix of french, english and german. He was giving me advice of what to do as work as being an helper for elderly in Switzerland because it's good money.
Nice couple. The guy was remembering the trips he made when he was younger like going to the north pole in Sweden from switzerland.
