Wrocław → Ootmarsum 815km Hitchhiked by Dadzios 13 1 Alone

It's a raining day

The first stop wasn't easy and I had to stay on the station about 2.5hours but I managed to. The next station In Legnica. The driver gives me two apples, which was great.


After few minutes polish driver took me from the gas station. It was almost 700km for me. Very good stop and ride. After some interesting conversation I received a few things from my driver. From food to book, which I am very happy about it.

Night hitch

It was almost 11 P.M but I had to be in the Netherlands tonight, so I had to force myself to get a ride. Actually it was easy because friendly woman took me 20km farther, than she was living. It was very good ride and inspiration talking.

Alone Nice man

Short ride

I catch a ride within 5 minutes with nice man. First of all I couldnt communicate with him and we talked with 4 mixed languages. He put me on the border between romania and Moldova.

Kidnaping? Nah..

I was waiting for my car and the guy has stopped after 20 minutes. First I was thinking that he want to kidnap me but I've made a huge mistake. It was my first ride and the guy was very generous. He showed me the neighborhood, city and drove with me to the hitchhiking spot. Very good ride.

Ukrainian driver

Moldova is a good country for hitchhiking adventure. I never waited more than 25minutes even in winter. The Ukrainian guy has stopped after 15 minutes and he drove to Odessa, but I wanted to stay in Chisinau for one day. He has open heart and I had a lot of gifts from him. A lot apples, cookies and even eggs for next trip. I was very happy to ride with him.

Do you wanna hitch a boat?

In 2016 i was trying to reach Giethoorn ( one of the floating city) in Netherlands. In this small place I hitch the boat with German tourists. I was thinking: why should I pay for a boat if I can hitch one?

Two female hikers dropped me off near their trailhead.

This woman and her dog Frodo drove me into town. She stopped despite the "Do not stop for hitchhikers" signs that unfortunately dotted the highway.

White Mountains, NH → St. Johnsbury, VT

A man named Patrick turned around to pick me up. He even changed his route so he could leave me in an advantageous spot. A really nice guy, we talked about cycling cross country, living in Germany, and building community with others.

Danville → Burlington

After an hour + wait I was starting to feel discouraged and a rain storm was rolling in. Three women driving home from vacation in Maine came to my rescue! They were old friends. We drove through a killer storm and they dropped me exactly where I needed to be.
