Cool Belgian guy
Very open-minded Belgian guy with decent English. Probably the only Belgian who's ever given me a ride. Stopped at the side of Lochness for a little picnic and complained about British food (I don't blame him), especially about French fries in Scotland.
Interesting Austrian Family
Very cool Austrian couple, who ended up giving me two rides. They'd used to live in the US and had a lot of interesting experiences. One of many chances to practice my German in Scotland.
Family from before.
90 year old driver
Oldest person to ever give me a ride. Nice Scottish guy from Dundee, who'd lived in the area in the past. His wife passed away recently and he was in town to see his friends.

A mailman gave me a ride, which is unheard of in the UK. Listened to traditional Scottish music, which I quite enjoyed.
Family goes out of their way
I was half-way out of the car when I see another car approaching – family with kids. I thought "oh well, not a chance" but gestured hitching anyway. I see the wife in the passenger seat mouthing "we 're full" and thought "fair enough". So I go to the mailman's car's trunk to get my bag out. Suddenly, the other car stops and backs up. The wife gets out, squeezes in the back and… (read on in Trip)

Inverness → Glendale
Two young women with children. Stopped because they thought I was going to the same festival they were. Drove me past the Inverness bridge
Quite a character. Founded a "dirty" dancing studio and ended up trademarking the term spicy in the context of dancing. Then got a substantial settlement from the BCC when they used it. He lived on Skye, but hated it and only lived there because of his wife. Called the locals "cousin shaggers". Met a friend of his in Dunvegan and (successfully) asked her to give me a ride to… (read on in Trip)
Friend of a friend
Friend of my previous driver. Drove me to Neist Point and kept complaining about the tourists who didn't know how to use single track roads (a very common theme on Skye). My bag ended up jamming the trunk opening mechanism (in a very hard to access pick up truck trunk), so we drove back to her home a spent a good 30 minutes trying to get the bag to move. Finally, she managed… (read on in Trip)

Guy Thought I Had the Wrong Intentions
Another motorcycle! Nice ride through the Kas peninsula to the town's center. At the end, I thanked the guy and asked for his name. As soon as he heard that he was like "Ooooh, no no no, you have the wrong idea…" I smiled and said "Ok, nevermind. Anyway, you will have sevap (Islamic good deed during Ramadhan) for this ride". As soon as he heard the word "sevap" and realized… (read on in Trip)

Esenköy → Kaş
Finally a motorcycle ride! Turkey never disappoints.
Bunch of dudes
Bunch of odd looking dudes. The driver owned a restaurant and was driving there from Fethiye.
Two Czechs, one of them from Brno! Arrived (and departed) on the same flight from Bratislava. They were looking for a house to buy. Cool dudes with lots of travel to weird places. Noticed my CeskosLOVEnsko shirt.

The Martin Guy
Slightly racist old school guy from Martin. Was going to Germany to work in construction. We had a fairly interesting conversation about life and my travels. He recently had a brain tumor removed. Last border crossing on my trip.
