Alone sleeping in a truck

first time I could sleep in a truck

At the rest area near La selva I searched in vain for an hour for a car heading for France. When I asked the trucks I found surprisingly fast a driver who gave me a ride. He was standing there for a while, but that's the way it is, if you don't ask the trucks before :) after a short waiting break we started. At 19:10 we arrived at the last rest area in Spain and the driver,… (read on in Trip)

Timagada → La Garita 44km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 1
Alone

At the parking lot at Roque Nublo I found a German family (mother father and two daughters) and asked them if they could take me somewhere near the east coast (I had a flight the next evening). They accepted and drove me to a village/small town called La Garita, which is only 10 km away from the airport. This is perfect. Sometimes you get really lucky.

Corralejo → Puerto de Mogán, Las Palmas, Spain 79km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 2
Alone

A British man who spent his last hours on the island before his plane took off took me with him. He planned to visit Puerto Rico, but because it was not a fixed plan, he drove me to my destination: Puerto Mogan. We had a good conversation during the trip and it was just great to have a normal conversation in English again.

Lomo de San Pedro → Teror 42km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 3
Alone

The weather was perfect. My plan was to hike near Mogan and eastwards this weekend until two ~30 year old boys stopped and took me to Veneguera. There I met some friends or family members of them. Most of the time I just sat around and waited until we could continue until something happened. The two boys bought me something to eat and drink in the bar/restaurant, and then… (read on in Trip)

La Aldea de San Nicolás, Las Palmas, Spain → Agaete 30km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 1
Alone

a German guy took me to Agaete. On the way there we also took a Ukrainian/Russian Hichthike couple. I got off in Agaete and my driver took the couple to Las Palmas, where he also wanted to go (or even further to Telde, but I can't remember).

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria → La Aldea de San Nicolás, Las Palmas, Spain 62km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 5
Alone

I approached an older man, maybe 50 years old, and he said if I could wait until he finished his break, then he could drive me to San Nicolas. I talked to him during this break and he said in Spanish that he would drive me to a German restaurant owner (at least that's how I understood it). We drove with his dog together the 10min to San Nicolas and there he drove me to a… (read on in Trip)

Puerto Real → Seville 111km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 1
Alone

A mother and her daughter went to Seville to pick up a family member at the Seville airport. They asked me where I wanted to get off and so they drove me to a (according to Hitchwiki) good place for hitchhiking (Centro Comercial Aljarafe). There I spend the next 3 hours trying to find a car that will take me to Huelva. After these 3 hours I gave up and took a blablacar… (read on in Trip)

Murcia → Granada 278km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 3
Alone

A HUGE MISUNDERSTANDING. The driver told me that he was going towards Almeria, so I accepted, and only 22 minutes later he stopped near el puntarron at a small gas station and a restaurant. I got stranded in this hitchhiking desert because there were simply too few cars and hardly any stopped at this gas station/restaurant to talk to. It was still in the morning (~9.30 am).

I was rescued by two carpenters who invited me for dinner in the small restaurant and then drove me 15 minutes further south (resting place near Alhama de Murcia). There they tried their best getting me a new driver.

a blablablacar driver and a passerby who smoked a lot of cannabis, and even though it was a weird ride, but hey, I made it further to Gibraltar :)

Organyà → Vallbona de les Monges 103km Hitchhiked by Thaddel 1
Alone

My drivers (a man and a woman (both ~30 years old) gave me a lift, and during the drive they invited me to a local farmers party in Vallbona de les Monges. There I met some Barcelonians, and one of them drove me to Olesa de Monteserrat in the evening. A very cool experience and a very beautiful area we passed through on the way there. I also liked the smaller village where my drivers live.
