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

In the Dark
Two local girls stopped even though it was getting dark.
There was a car accident and we had to take a really narrow road in the mountains. Was crazy.

Two girls picked me up to bring me up the mountain. They told me I could go up to see a beautiful view. I left my bag at their work and hitchhiked up. It was great. When I came back, they had prepared a breakfast for me ♥
Lost In the Woods
I asked a guy in a petrol station, and he drove me towards Sweden. He had to pick up a fridge before, and I offered my help. Then, he invited me over as it was getting late. His place was in the middle of the forest. They were living simple and authentic life, healthy and environment friendly. Loved them.
Shared a long ride with an old Danish guy. He had to leave me at 11pm in the middle of nowhere in Danemark, where I had to wait in a petrol station for the night.
A nice woman picked me up before Hamburg, and I was struggling to stay awake. She was okay for me to rest. We talked a bit between my naps, and she offered me to bring me to her place in Bonn. Not my way, but I needed to have a rest, and she was really cool. She made me a very nice dinner and made me a really cool hitchhiking sign for the rest of my trip.

Sleeping in a Trailer
We reached Hanover in the evening, and my driver had to stop. He offered me to sleep in the back of his truck after drinking a beer together. I wasn't prepared for that cold, not a good night. On the next day, I helped him to unload some stuff in Hamburg, and he left me in a very bad spot south west of the town. I had no idea where he wanted to leave me, but he said it was good. No.
A crazy Mexican who spent once 200k€ travelling for a year in Europe.
A french family offered me a ride to Sweden. We took a nice way in Danemark to visit a bit. I spent a night in a place I shouldn't, at the ferry station. I was locked inside and provoked the alarm during the night, got kicked out in the morning without fine.
He was coming from Serbia directly to Oslo… Nice guy!
