Driving home for Christmas

We were two trying to hitch home for Christmas.

Two rides:

  1. Old sweet couple on their way home. First time taking hitchhikers.

  2. Taxi driver who picked us up cos "Driving home for Christmas" was her favourite Christmas song. She was going to work on Christmas day and all the earnings she would have made that day would go towards an orphanage.

Smile, and the… (read on in Trip)

And they say you never meet your driver twice

Brussels – Köln – Frankfurt – Freiburg

After getting dropped off on an autobahn in Frankfurt (Germany), I try and get a ride back home to Freiburg (Germany). It must’ve been 15 minutes after loads of asking around before I spot a Zürich (Switzerland) car. I run up to the driver as he gets back into his car and gets ready to take off.

He takes me straight away. As I… (read on in Trip)

Art as a means to the mind

It is not the first time I’ve hitched to concerts. The trouble about living in a town like Freiburg (Germany), few good bands pass through and I’m not left with much choice but to follow where the music goes. My friend Vanessa had invited me to catch the <a href="http://www.myspace.com/thenotwistnow">Notwist</a> in Heidelberg (Germany). Last.fm describes them as the Radiohead… (read on in Trip)

An Encounter With The Border Police

I was standing just at the border of Belgium to France at a <a href='http://bit.ly/ibFi9V'>super sweet spot</a>. Cars only drive 10 km/h and the highway becomes a one lane road, so it is super good for drivers to pull over. At first I was a bit scared about hitchhiking there because the police was stopping and controlling cars, but I just held up my Calais sign and they didnt… (read on in Trip)

On the way to Project 888

On the 8th August of 2008 approximately 120 hitchhikers came to Paris for participating in Project 888. You can read all about it on Hitchwiki ;)

So I was going from London to Dover with a friend and we got dropped at an actually very lovely gas station. Unfortunately for us, the employees of the gas station didn't want us to hitchhike… (read on in Trip)
