Vienna → Berlin 655km Hitchhiked by Flohfish 8
Two people

B 7: Brünner Straße/Hochfeldstraße, Wien (AT) → Futurum Shopping Center, Brno (CZ) (110 km)

Even that hitchwiki.org is saying now that the hitchhiking spot at Stammersdorf is not working well anymore, my friend Mira and I found a lift within 5 minutes by a young Czeck woman, named Pavla. The car (a Skoda) was lacking a few horse powers so the right to Brno took nearly 2 hours. Nevertheless it was a great start for a trip and also we got some good vibrations for the… (read on in Trip)

D 1: Service station Brno-Lískovec (CZ) → D 1: Service station Mikulášov (CZ) (96,2 km)

Left in Brno still on the R52 we had to walk for around half an hour to reach the first petrol station on the D1 direction Praha. This petrol station was not very busy but still we found a lift after 1h15min waiting time. This time in the back of a Land Rover in which we were sitting on chairs which were installed to the sides of the car. Quite an interesting ride.

D 1: Service station Mikulášov (CZ) → 8: Service station Střížkov (CZ) (110 km)

In Mikulášov again we only needed 5 minutes to catch the next ride. We found a 32 year old Czech man who was on his way home to Praha.Friendly as he was he didn't just drop us in the city but brought us to a service station directly on the street to Dresden.

8: Service station Střížkov (CZ) → D8 (80): Jílové (CZ) (91,8 km)

Till this point I can only say that we had a lucky day – and it went further like that. Again only 5 minutes waiting time and a Czech couple picked us up. Unfortunately they didn't speeak any language we speak and so our ride didn't end at the petrol station behind Ústí nad Labem but at the first exit afterwards. This meant half an hour of walking again. It was not too bad… (read on in Trip)

D 8: Service station Varvažov (CZ) → A 4: Raststätte Dresdner Tor (DE) (59,2 km)

After half an hour walking we finally reached the service station. Quite exhausted I wanted smoke a cigarette. I asked a guy and aside of offering me a lighter he also offered me a lift. He was in a van with 5 others on their way to Leipzig to go to a concert of "The Ocean". Luckily it was a 8-seater car. Instead of going into Dresden or to Leipzig we decided to get off at… (read on in Trip)

A 4: Raststätte Dresdner Tor (DE) → B 170: Shell station, Hansastraße, Dresden (DE) (21,5 km)

Getting out at Dresdner Tor and switching sides to hitchhike to Berlin was probably not the best idea as in 1,5 hours we found only one vehicle going in that direction – and it was full. All other cars were going direction PL or CZ. After realizing this we changed our plan. Get a car that drives to Dresden and carry on from there. …and it worked. The first driver, a… (read on in Trip)

B 170: GO service station, Hansastraße, Dresden (DE) → A 13: Raststätte Freienhufener Eck (DE) (58,9 km)

From the Shell petrol station where we had been droped off we walked a few meters north to the GO station as it was way more busy. It only took us a few minutes to find a driver going to Finsterwalde. As it is only half way to Berlin he offered to leave us on the first service station on the A 13. A mistake we regret later but for the moment we were happy. We had some nice… (read on in Trip)

A 13: Raststätte Freienhufener Eck → U-Bahnhof Kottbusser Tor, Berlin

Raststätte Freienhufener Eck: Never ever get out here in the evening. We arrived around 21:30 and the number of cars arriving within the next 2,5 hours were maximum twenty. How good that only 3 of them drove in direction Berlin. Two of them full and anotherone which's driver didn't want to take anybody. After nearly no car arriving after 23:00 we decided to lay down to get… (read on in Trip)
