Interpol officer

Having being picked up by a young guy who'd spent 3 years in prison, we were really open to next ride. We wanted to take a bus that goes once every few hours. It should have been at the stop at 15:00, but at 15:20 there were still no signs of it. We stopped for about 10 minutes at the bus station when a really quality car stopped – guy in his 50s. He was really polite and the… (read on in Trip)

Famous rapper's brother giving us a fire mixtape

Got picked up by famous rapper's brother. Didn't speak English, but was super cool nonetheless. Even gave us a mixtape of unreleased songs! After having some issues conversating, we discovered that he's spent 3 years in prison in Netherlands. After his release, the feds terminated his passport for some reason, hence why he ended up in Kosovo. Told us that the girls from Kosovo… (read on in Trip)

Taxi

I was walking out of Zakho, when some resting in a kiosk asked me were I was going. I replied Duhok and understood it was indeed a taxi stand. I explained I had no money, but they gestured to in. I shared the taxi with two soldiers and one older guy, who (it became clear) had paid for my ride.

Friends going way out of their way

I was waiting for some type of shared van or something to come by and drive me out od Duhok (while still inside rhe city). The system seemed very confusing, so I asked some people in a car who just came out of a mosque if it was the right place for a bus to the city's outskirts. They just gestured to get in their car and drove me there :D While going towards the exit, I asked… (read on in Trip)

Police officer

Yazidi police officer who wanted money, but decided to take me anyway. He was very excited about me visiting the yazidi holy place of Lalish. Kept on asking about girls in Slovakia.

Pick up

Nice guy in a pick up truck. Gave me sunflower seeds and ended up hitching a truck for me that took me to Lalish.

Trucker

Short truck ride hitched by my previous driver. Gave me water and we passed a bunch of oil fields with flaming chimneys.

The Bratislavian

Walked around the gas station quite a bit and told myself I take any ride either towards Bratislava or further, whichever came first. If I got a ride to Bratislava then I'd stop over at grandmas to say goodbye and sleep at the SK-H border to start hitching at 4am. I wanted to reach Istanbul from Bratislava within 24 hours. After unsuccessfully talking to a Turkish family… (read on in Trip)

The English Kurd

After a 1,200km insane ride the previous day, my driver dropped me off at a gas station near Izmit where I got very tradional Turkish Burger King :P (all the Turkish places there seemed a bit fancy). After chilling on wifi for about an hour and staring at some random car on the highway catching on fire, I went back to the scorching heat to continue my journey towards Eastern… (read on in Trip)

Longest and most insane ride, 1200km, tow truck, broken car, no sleep...

Where to begin. Viennese plate and car full of stuff gave away this man's Turkness like nothing else. I asked him if he was headed for Bulgaria and added I was headed for Turkey. His eyes glowed once he heard Turkey and gestured to get in. He was around 60 and from Sakarya near Istanbul and had lived in Austria for nearly 30 years. He was quite a character and had even run for… (read on in Trip)

Bulgarian car hauler

Nice Bulgarian guy who drove a tow truck and was hauling cars from Germany to Bulgaria. Although he had been going to Bulgaria, I chose to get out at the Hungarian border as he was transiting via Romania and I wanted to attempt my dream, ie. Bratislava to Istanbul in 24 hours. We talked about cars and life in Bulgaria. He decided not to emigrate because he wanted to have his… (read on in Trip)

Polish trucker

Polish turned out once again to be an irreplacable language to know when hitching. After walking around this Hungarian gas station under the scorching sun for a while, I went to ask this guy in Polish and he agreed to take me to the border. Hauled medicine from Sweden to Serbia.

Military hitches a car for me

I was walking through the last checkpoint after the border crossing towards Zakho, when the military manning it gestured for me to approach them. I explained I was going to Zakho, so they flagged some older guy who took me there. He was really nice. Welcome to Kurdistan!
