a nice romanian picked us up altho we didn't share any language in common =)

we were picked up by one young moldovan in a pretty dirty car, which raised police's suspicion on the way. we somehow made him understand it was actually us whom they were stopping and that he had to follow them. we expected trouble since we all had different passports, however they let us go, fortunately. then on the way he explained he was robbed by one blablacar passanger… (read on in Trip)

we started talking when Darek told me he was going to belguim, which meant over hannover, however when we found out he was polish, then Aga got in action. they were chatting for a while and he changed his mind, going over leipzig instead, so we finally caught the right direction. on the way he even "missed" an exit and went further, probably just so he could talk to her more :D.

that one was one of the top 10 anime plot twists. i see "fr" plates and just talk to the people "excuse me, do you speak english, are you going to freibourg"? he says yes but that they are coppers, so they can't take us, so i thank him and wish him good way. when he comes out of the gas station he invites us with them, haha, so we crossed half germany with them and we were… (read on in Trip)

that's where the story got complicated. they were only going to mulhouse, so off we went and ended up somewhere over the border in some place. we didn't quite understand each other because the guys barely spoke englihs, so we risked and it didn't end up well. it was good after all that we left highway for a while because we were able to buy some food, which later on came… (read on in Trip)

asking round in that place on the french side of the border one guy offered to take us to the highway and he dropped us right by the parking on the border, ie abandoned border checkpoint. there we quickly understood we would have trouble continuing because barely anybody was parked and it was about to get dark, so we started thumbing on the shoulder. the ride was useful but we… (read on in Trip)

here things got even funnier. one young guy was snowboarding in the alps and going home, and he said he'd make it to the first rest area, some 30 kms away. at some point he leaves the highway and says the rest area is like 3 km away :D :D so we walked there right on the highway shoulder, hoping we'd make it without any police hassle. and we made it =)

so we came walking to the rest area porte d'alsace and we were both destroyed, so we decided to rest a bit and eat. when we were about to walk to the entrance i heard some guy speaking portuguese, so we decided to stop and wait till he finishes. i started chatting to him, he was very surprised, but then he made his pal accept us, and off we went =) we were lucky that pippo,… (read on in Trip)

we already thought we'd get stuck but then two guys appeared and took us almost to lyon =)

things went wrong again. after some confusion we find out the guy was about to leave the highway, so in order not to have even more trouble we stopped on the exit and switched sides, in a bid to get on the highway quickly. which we did faster than we expected =)

a nice couple offered to take us to the rest area by the girona airport =)

at first they said no, i nicely wished them safe journey, and then plot twish when she waves me to come back and invites us in =) they took us all the way down to rest area of sagunto

we tried for as long as we could, but then after a while it was simply too cold and we were too tired to go on. it was a self service gas station with a toilet and some vending machines, nothing more, so we were lucky a bridge lead us to the other side, where we could spend the night in a warm place. the next day a super friendly flemish woman with her dogga picked us up and… (read on in Trip)

it took forever to advance to torrent, pretty much bypassing valencia. but eventually we made it with help of a lovely romanian named Bogdan =)

another plot twist. we were happily waiting on that big rest area after eating our breakfast, when we saw two cool-looking spanish guys, whom were slightly to fast for me to talk to them when they passed by. when they came out, i approached them and asked them if they were going to spain. they, on my big surprise, told me they were already thinking if montpeiller, which was on… (read on in Trip)

there were some guys selling some crap, so we only got a ride when they were gone and people weren't confusing us with them anymore, altho we clearly looked like travelers. anyways, we got a lift to porta de barcelona eventually =)

while waiting the previous night it was damp and thus pretty cold outside, we were simply too tired, so we decided to sleep in the hotel on the rest area. we were surprised the receptionist, an ex hitchhiker from lithuania, gave us a discount, so we got a room for a nice discount and the price was pretty accessible :). we started late because we badly needed that longer rest,… (read on in Trip)

as soon as we made it there i see one cool-looking guy, i ask him if he's going to alicante and if he'd take us and we're on the way :D. he was going to playa de san juan but took us to in front of our appartment block =)

Crossing the English Channel on a River Boat

After only one hour asking around in Ramsgate, I found a German Captain who was agree to bring me to France the next day. It was with a river boat, conditions were super good and it was a fun time! He was a retired aircraft pilot, living on his boat every summer. He also lived 3 years on it, mostly travelling in France.
