Young Kurds

These guys came out of nowhere while I was walking on a dirt road onto an on ramp. They seemed confused and so was I, but I gestured towards the highway and said Saveh, where I was headed. They just seemed lost, so they said ok and backed away. So I continued onto the ramp and hitched under the unforgiving sun. Eight minutes later guess what – these guys pull over! It turned… (read on in Trip)

One of the slowest truck rides

Hitched this guy at a peage. Nice trucker, but we weren't able to communicate much due to the language barrier. He drove fairly slow and I understood why once he had to pull over due to steam coming out the engine. We tried to cool down the truck and replace the cooling water but he had to stop a couple more times. Finally, he pulled over next to a repair shop and asked for… (read on in Trip)

Full pickup truck

Hitched these guys after an interesting adventure on the Iran-Iraq border where we somehow stumbled into Iran and got lucky the Iranians didn't see and arrest us. We had a bit of conversation in limited Kurdish/Arabic and were a bit squeezed inside. One of the guys even went to sit in the back, so we could have more space (I really wanted to sit there tho!). To my surprise,… (read on in Trip)

Taxi takes us for free!

After an army guy saw us hitching, he asked us where we were going. Pretty soon a taxi pulled up and the guy told them that were going to Slemani so they stopped for us. I explained we were hitching and not paying, which they didn't like at first, but then said to get in. Nice guys, the driver had a brother in the UK, so we talked a bit in English and broken Arabic. Stopped… (read on in Trip)

Trucker

Nice Kurdish trucker. Stopped almost as soon as we started hitching and was going directly to Halabja. Didn't speak much English. I was also traveling with an English girl I met in Slemani.

I met the founder of Hitchwiki

After waiting at the Grunewald service area with two guys from Argentina I met with the founder of Hitchwiki. If you have any chance of meeting him, i only could say you, that you will have a great time/ride with him. Firstly he said, that he only could take me to the Hermsdorfer Kreuz, but while we were talking he changes the destination of his navi to my home town, even if… (read on in Trip)
