Ponte Tresa to Porto Ceresio

It was late. I was lucky to get a lift to the next village from the two ladies. The left me in a bar, the woman lived in the first floor or next door and offered me to stay, if I couldn't get to my final destination.

Going with a truck

A Truck-driver gave me a lift further on. We had a misunderstandig and I went some kilometers in the wrong direction with him. He was very sorry about this and upset. He was cute somehow, even offered me food, cigarettes and a coffee.

Guy stopped for me just outside of Vilnius. I was hitching with sign to Minsk and he offered to take me a bit closer to the border.

He left me just outside of truck customs and I kept my journey going.

Ride to Minsk
