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,… (lese mehr in Trips)

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… (lese mehr in Trips)

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… (lese mehr in Trips)

Interpol officer

Having being picked up by a young guy who'd spent 3 years in prison, we were really open to next ride. We wanted to take a bus that goes once every few hours. It should have been at the stop at 15:00, but at 15:20 there were still no signs of it. We stopped for about 10 minutes at the bus station when a really quality car stopped – guy in his 50s. He was really polite and… (lese mehr in Trips)

Famous rapper's brother giving us a fire mixtape

Got picked up by famous rapper's brother. Didn't speak English, but was super cool nonetheless. Even gave us a mixtape of unreleased songs! After having some issues conversating, we discovered that he's spent 3 years in prison in Netherlands. After his release, the feds terminated his passport for some reason, hence why he ended up in Kosovo. Told us that the girls from… (lese mehr in Trips)

Zakho → Lalish 102km Getrampt von 5
Alone

Taxi

I was walking out of Zakho, when some resting in a kiosk asked me were I was going. I replied Duhok and understood it was indeed a taxi stand. I explained I had no money, but they gestured to in. I shared the taxi with two soldiers and one older guy, who (it became clear) had paid for my ride.

Friends going way out of their way

I was waiting for some type of shared van or something to come by and drive me out od Duhok (while still inside rhe city). The system seemed very confusing, so I asked some people in a car who just came out of a mosque if it was the right place for a bus to the city's outskirts. They just gestured to get in their car and drove me there :D While going towards the exit, I… (lese mehr in Trips)

Police officer

Yazidi police officer who wanted money, but decided to take me anyway. He was very excited about me visiting the yazidi holy place of Lalish. Kept on asking about girls in Slovakia.

Pick up

Nice guy in a pick up truck. Gave me sunflower seeds and ended up hitching a truck for me that took me to Lalish.

Trucker

Short truck ride hitched by my previous driver. Gave me water and we passed a bunch of oil fields with flaming chimneys.

Brno → Bratislava 109km Getrampt von 1

The Bratislavian

Walked around the gas station quite a bit and told myself I take any ride either towards Bratislava or further, whichever came first. If I got a ride to Bratislava then I'd stop over at grandmas to say goodbye and sleep at the SK-H border to start hitching at 4am. I wanted to reach Istanbul from Bratislava within 24 hours. After unsuccessfully talking to a Turkish family… (lese mehr in Trips)

The English Kurd

After a 1,200km insane ride the previous day, my driver dropped me off at a gas station near Izmit where I got very tradional Turkish Burger King :P (all the Turkish places there seemed a bit fancy). After chilling on wifi for about an hour and staring at some random car on the highway catching on fire, I went back to the scorching heat to continue my journey towards… (lese mehr in Trips)

Horgoš → Dimitrovgrad 536km Getrampt von 1
Alone

Longest and most insane ride, 1200km, tow truck, broken car, no sleep...

Where to begin. Viennese plate and car full of stuff gave away this man's Turkness like nothing else. I asked him if he was headed for Bulgaria and added I was headed for Turkey. His eyes glowed once he heard Turkey and gestured to get in. He was around 60 and from Sakarya near Istanbul and had lived in Austria for nearly 30 years. He was quite a character and had even run… (lese mehr in Trips)

Bulgarian car hauler

Nice Bulgarian guy who drove a tow truck and was hauling cars from Germany to Bulgaria. Although he had been going to Bulgaria, I chose to get out at the Hungarian border as he was transiting via Romania and I wanted to attempt my dream, ie. Bratislava to Istanbul in 24 hours. We talked about cars and life in Bulgaria. He decided not to emigrate because he wanted to have… (lese mehr in Trips)

Polish trucker

Polish turned out once again to be an irreplacable language to know when hitching. After walking around this Hungarian gas station under the scorching sun for a while, I went to ask this guy in Polish and he agreed to take me to the border. Hauled medicine from Sweden to Serbia.

Military hitches a car for me

I was walking through the last checkpoint after the border crossing towards Zakho, when the military manning it gestured for me to approach them. I explained I was going to Zakho, so they flagged some older guy who took me there. He was really nice. Welcome to Kurdistan!

Awesome young students

Three students driving to Hasankeyf to hangout with their friend. Invited me for çay (which is how every ride ends in Kurdistan apparently) and we talked a lot. Once they found out I wanted to sleep in my tent they really bend over backwards to find a safe place and ended up talking to a "picknick area" owner who allowed me to set up tent on his land near the river. As I… (lese mehr in Trips)

To van or not to van

Very long wait in the nasty sun. SE Turkey was supposed to be great for HH, but so far it seemed average. Not quite sure whether this was an actual commercial minivan. It had a Batman sign, but there were only 4 kids inside (+driver) and they seemed related. The guy was ok with "no money", so I got in. Fed me lots of fruit (Malatya apricots), but didn't talk much. Once we… (lese mehr in Trips)

Driving school

Three guys who drove me around Elazig. Throughout the ride it became apparent that one of guys was learning how to drive. Short ride.

Strange guy

Very talkative older guy who drove me to a lake. Suggested good places to set up a tent, which I did. Kept acknowledging everything 3 times and never stopped talking.

Swedish Kurd

Really nice guy who spoke very good English as he lives in Sweden and was home for holidays. Worked as a social worker in jail. Short ride.

Village guys

Father and son. Didn't speak much English but gave me water and I was able to talk a little bit about mountain hiking with them in my limited Turkish.

Young guy going to Malatya

Nice young guy who was going precisely where I was heading on a fairly deserted road. While waiting I had a good German conversation with an older guy who sat at a bus stop and who'd lived in Germany. His sons still lived in Germany and his wife had recently passed away. It wasn't really clear what he was doing at the bus stop, as he just sort of hung around and talked to… (lese mehr in Trips)
