|Chisinau → Kyiv 470km 10||3 months ago|
|Bucharest → Chisinau 438km 8||3 months ago|
Saint Petersburg → Moscow
Got a ride for 450km by a truck driver, was very nice. We drank his coffee and he told a lot of nice stories. 10/10.
Got a ride to Tver. The driver wasn't very sociable, but that's exactly what I needed, as I've got a little bit tired.
So the driver picked me up from Tver like 10 minutes after I've got off the previous one. He was going to switch to another road after Klin, but he decided to go through Moscow and took me to the metro station (like 100km from the place where he was going to switch the road initially). And we talked a lot, he works in a delivery, is a musician and a really cool guy in general.

Odesa → Kyiv
Nothing special, got a ride like 10km from the city.
Got a ride from 250km to Uman, that was nice. Driver was extra funny.
Spend 5 hours at the gas station near Uman. Met 2 guys who got robbed during the trip, they were left without money, phones, documents, clothes, everything was taken. One guy decided to go on his own, leaving the other alone here. I gave him some food because I felt really sorry for him. And we eventually got a ride together to Kyiv. The driver was super awesome.

Saratov → Voronezh
Got a ride with the guy who told me a lot of trashy stories: how he cheated on Armenian guys and left them without money, how he was stealing corn and watermelons, how he was smoking weed etc. Funny guy.

Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine → Voronezh
Got a ride from Belgorod 70km by the highway.
Got a ride from the middle of Belgorod-St. Oskol highway to Stary Oskol (70km)
Some random taxi guy dropped me for 10rm from the border for free. Super nice.
Some guy dropped me almost to Belgorod, I've taken the bus from this place. That was cool, though his truck looked like it's gonna break during the trip :D
A guy dropped me to the Ukraine-Russia border, after the trip he asked the money from me, when I told I don't have any, he started swearing at me, like, why I didn't tell it before. Eventually he just let me go. Totally my fault for not clarifying it before the ride, but still.
A truck going to Voronezh stopped at the road I was going and the driver asked if I need a ride, I said "yes, sure!", and it was awesome, since it was almost night and I had no idea how to get home. The ride was quite fast, which is also awesome.

Kyiv → Kharkiv
Guy dropped me till he went another way to Kremenchuk.
Hitched a bus to Poltava
Got a ride to Borispil (15rm from Kyiv) with a guy who looked like he was in jail before. Cool anyway.
Poltava is a disaster for hitchhikers, I've spent 5 hours here. I've got picked up by a couple who were driving to Kharkiv directly, that was super sweet.
|04 May 2018|
Lviv → Kyiv
Got a ride from Lviv suburbs directly to Kyiv, that was super fast. The couple that picked me up was also super sweet, they were going to Zaporizhia, they asked me to put some music from my phone. After the trip, the woman jokingly suggested me to go with them to Zaporizhia, because riding without music is awful :D I'm gonna miss them.

Voronezh → Storozhevoye 1-e
Was going with 3 guys on a "buchanka" (don't know how to describe this car in another way lol), they were incredibly funny.
|01 October 2017|
Stary Oskol → Voronezh
The guy was heading to Belgorod, so he dropped me for only, like, 5-10km. But good anyway.
The guy was going to Gorshechnoye, so he dropped me there. Nice.
Hell of a ride
So, I was standing on a road, there was no light, so I was using my flashlight on my phone so people would actually see it. Then this guy stopped. He somehow broke 2 wheels on his car, so it was impossible to ride. So I helped him fixing it (actually was standing with a flashlight to give him some light). That took about ~2 hours. But he still needed to go to the car service,… (read on in Trip)
I was standing on the highway for, like, 30-40 minutes, freezing, no cars around, and there's this guy, going to Voronezh. He dropped me to the city and we had some discussions while driving about everything.

Voronezh → Stary Oskol
The guy turned on Christian pray on his music player and listened to it for the whole ride. That was unusual.
Run away from the work, huh
I was riding with 2 guys. They told me that they run off the work and told the security guy at the factory that they're gonna buy some beer lol. It seemed like they were already tipsy, since they were driving 150 km/h and broke all the driving rules, but anyway. But they bought me a bottle of beer and we had a funny conversation. That was very good overall.
New awesome people
I met a guy while waiting for the car, who was going from Baikal lake (!) to his home in Ukraine (!!) and he was returning, meaning he already went from Ukraine to Baikal by hitchiking (!!!) That's 12000 kms, awesome. Wish I can do this kind of a trip one day. We waited for a car for ~1.5 hours, then the truck stopped, the driver was heading to Belgorod, so he dropped us, me… (read on in Trip)

Voronezh → Ryazan
I was riding with some kind of pervert, he asked me about my sexual experiences and my dick. Such a weird guy. Also he almost cause a car crash when we were in the city and almost started a fight with the other driver. Anyway, he drove me to Lipetsk eventually
World has a lot of wonderful people
I was riding with a woman with her son, they are sooooo hospitable. I told the woman that I was extra thirsty (because I ran out of water) and she gave me a cold beer and later she bought me a bottle of cold water. So sweet. They told me they were volunteers and in overall they were awesome people, love them.
