Charity Hitchhike

My first hitchhike! An old man picked us up to drive us to Manchester as he was seeing his daughter there. We waited for ages on the outskirts of Sheffield but the man was lovely.

Rosie, the only woman to pick us up

She was a teacher and dropped us in one of the most scenic towns in the Peak District.

Fang Orange Farm to Mae Suai - Part 2.

Woke up the next day on the orange farm with the family that said they were going to take me to Chiang Rai. They made me breakfast and got me drunk again in the morning. The driver gave me 2 shots of rum at 8:30am haha! We had beer and some traditional homemade food. Some kind of meat porkballs with some greens and sticky rice. Before leaving we got a tour of the farm (no… (lese mehr in Trips)

Mae Suai to Chiang Rai

A monk to a selfie with me while I was waiting for a ride. Got a ride from a friendly group of guys my age going to Chiang Rai.

Austrian mom

Probably the third Austrian that has ever given me ride, really neat mom with a kid in the back. She used to live in France and Spain, so we had a good conversation about traveling. She got really jealous about my summer plans :D Said she always picks up hitchhikers, despite her husband telling her not to. (#feminism :P) Drove me to fairly desperate spot (I misunderstood… (lese mehr in Trips)

Czech waitress in Austria

Young Czech girl from Mikulov, who worked in Austria as a waitress. Picked me up from a pretty hopeless on-ramp.

First Lithuanian ever

Lithuanian trucker who I talked to at the border crossing between A and CZ. Spoke some Russian and some English, so we switched between the two. It was the first time I actually interacted with a Lithuanian person, let alone getting a ride. Drove me to Brno.

Neat Czech guy who used to hitch himself and who was quite well traveled. Now opening a hostel in Mikulov, so I'll definitely pay them a visit in the future :)

Tunisian-Polish trucker!

Really awesome ride. Tunisian trucker in a Polish truck. He'd lived in Poland with his Polish wife for 7 years. We had a great conversation in Polish (his was great, unlike my kindergardener Arabic, which I tried, too) just about everything from the Arab Spring, the Amazigh to farming in Poland to how his dad drives trucks from Tunisia to Mauritania via the Sahara (my heart… (lese mehr in Trips)

Brickhouse Hostel to Local Gas Station

Trying to get to Chiang Rai. Got a ride from a friendly American living in Pai. Took me to a local gas station where I made a sign for Chiang Rai.

Local Petrol Station to Shell Petrol Station by intersection of 1095 and 107.

Had some trouble getting a ride from first gas station so I walked a couple meters down away from the locals to pick a new spot. No luck after a couple minutes so I decided to walk down to the next gas station. Thai lady with very little English said she was going to Chiang Mai and could take me. Nice ride through the mountain. Stopped and had Pad Thai. I treated her.

Petrol Station at 107 to Side of Highway

A very confusing ride. Thai lady picked me up with minimal english and said she was going 60km but still insisted I come along when I said I was going to Chiang Mai. She picked her friend up and then drove to this farm to unload some boxes which I think were pig food. When I asked all they said was "Pig". We took some pictures together with some ladys on the farm and they… (lese mehr in Trips)

Side of the Road by 107 to Chiang Dao

Friendly older couple picked me up and drove me to Ciang Dao. Driver spoke very good english. He said he was a world traveler and lived on Koh Samui before it got popular.

Side of highway 107 in Chiang Dao to Family friend's home in Fang - Part 1.

Family picked me up and said they were driving to Fang. They offered for me to stay in Fang overnight and take me to Chiang Rai in the morning. It ended up being on this orange farm. They cooked me dinner and got me drunk.

A guy I went at the lycee with. He told me he started to pick up hitchhiker after a "bad" experience he had himself recently as he tried it. It was not easy.

Ottawa to Nowhere

After 3h waiting time, about to give up finally Dave stopped and drove me halfway on the 417 at the exit to go to Hawkesbury where there is the Herb's gas station. Not many people there, almost no one going on the highway. Thought I was going to have to pinch my tent for the night!

Nowhere to Montreal

Finally I got very lucky and the second car getting onto the highway stopped to pick me up to Montreal. Temy and Aletta, 2 professional dancers who were going to teach a workshop in Montreal and stopped at the gas station to refill. Nice ride

Winnipeg to Kenora

After being dropped off on the Highway 1 by my host (thanks so much!), got picked up by Eric in 5 min for a first ride towards Kenora. Good ride, Eric used to hitchhike a lot as well.

Kenora to Ottawa

After 1h15 min waiting on the 17 north of Kenora, Marcel stopped to pick me up. He said he was going south of Ottawa. He has a pick up with a caravan. After what happened between Calgary and Winnipeg (You can read that on the Calagary->Moosomin trip), I try not to be to optimistic and stay on guard in case he turns to also be an asshole. But Passing Thunder Bay I agree to… (lese mehr in Trips)

Rookie mistake

First ride of my life, of course I was so excited and clueless I hopped in, but the guy wasn't driving very far. Had to turn back to my first, excellent, spot.


Candy break XD

Ski Dad

From gas station to gas station. Had to ask around for this one.

A little push

Nice mom with her kid took quite a detour just to get me to a big gas station where I actually had a chance of finding a ride. Struggled to find the spot at the start in Jyväskylä (Pakkola shopping centre) and there was not much traffic. Long-distance hitchhiking on a Sunday… not the best idea.

Mystery Chauve Man

Single male who spoke no English and kept vey quiet, but took a detour and dropped me in the city centre.

Brand new car

Nice chat. Dropped me in a perfect stop in Jämsä, right after a roundabout.

Human kindness and random interactions

Reaaally struggled to find the starting spot in Tampere, so I ended up asking a random old lady who was talking a walk. She didn't speak any English but asked another lady who was passing by to translate and together they tried to figure out where the spot was and how I could get there. She ended up calling her husband so he could take me to the gas station, which was just… (lese mehr in Trips)

Turning back

Getting a bit desperate, started asking at the gas station for either direction and found someone to take me back to the starting point.

Giggly teenagers

Couple of awkward but nice Laestadians (I only found out later about this sect)

Vienna → Breclav 66km Getrampt von 1

Weirdest ride ever, ended up in a tow truck

Relatively uneventful start, hitched at a spot which wasn't that great last time, but this time almost immediately an Austrian guy stopped. The guy was going back to Vienna however, so I declined. Shortly afterwards a Czech guy with a Moravian license plate pulled over and was going directly to Brno, which was awesome. Literally 2 minutes into the ride the car started… (lese mehr in Trips)

Same guy, same time

I was hitching at my favorite gas station in Brno. The guy who picked me up last time and drove me all the way to Vienna told me that he drives the same truck at the same time every single day at 5.30. Well this time he was late, but happily picked me up 5.55 :P We talked a bit about cars and stuff.

First I made a sign for Chiang Mai. No luck after awhile. 2 guys came up and told me I need to get on the main highway. Another lady got involved and they offered to give me food and pay for my train ticket to Chiang Mai. I refused and thanked them. One of the guys drove me on his scooter to the main highway. After 5 minutes of standing there, he came back he took me to the… (lese mehr in Trips)

Finally got a ride from a friendly couple going to Bangkok. Made a sign this time that said “North”. They gave me a donut and water.

Chumphon Pier to Chumphon

Started my journey on the island Koh Tao. It was a late very at 10:15 but it was the earliest and cheapest I could get to start hitchikig. My goal was to make it all the way up to Ayutthaya Chiang Mai but first stopping in Ayutthaya to check out the ruins. I knew it was ambitious to do it all in one day but I thought I would try.

I napped on the ferry over and got off… (lese mehr in Trips)

Chumphon to Main Highway

I walked towards the main highway and started hitchiking outside a bus station thinking it would lead me on the main highway. After about 10 minutes a lady came out with a iced cold Pepsi and gave it to me. So kind.

I kept waiting. A stopped and looked like he was dropping some people off but he walked up to me and asked me where I was going. He didn’t seem interested… (lese mehr in Trips)

Highway to Amphoe Ban Lat

Got a ride after 15 minutes on the side of the highway from a couple. I asked to go to Ratchaburi because it seemed like it was past the turn off for Bangkok. I’ve heard it’s difficult hitchhiking out of Bangkok. He spoke very little English but told me to get in immediately after I said Ratchaburi so I hopped in the cab.

It was a long fast ride down the highway. He… (lese mehr in Trips)

Amphoe Ban Lat to Amphoe Mueang Phetchaburi

Very kind mom and daughter stopped for me and insisted on taking me to bus station. Took the ride because it was getting dark. No more buses so I crashed in a guesthouse for the night.

Calgary to Strathmore

Diffcult start, I waited 1h30 at the traffic light and gave up this HH spot. Then I walked past the bridge to hitchhike directly on the highway, got pick up while walking on the side showing a thumbs up, not even had time to reach the point I was aiming. I definitely recommend to not try at the traffic light and walk directly on the Highway. I got a ride with Nick, a nice… (lese mehr in Trips)

Strathmore to Toronto? Oh no Moosomin.. Thanks asshole.

Got picked up at the exit of Strathmore in less than 5 min by an Indian truck driver, Gagan, who doesn't speak english very well, but we could manage to talk. This guy was driving from Calgary to Toronto! I'm going till Halifax so I saw a potential very long ride. Except that once the night showed up, he stopped in Moosomin, for potentially spend the night there as Calgary… (lese mehr in Trips)

After being unpredictably staying for the night in a motel in Moosomin (because of the fucking pervert and asshole of the day before –> see previous trip), I started hitchhiking around 9:30am to go to Winnipeg. Traffic was pretty low, half very local. I finally got picked up after 40min by 2 very nice guys, Martin and Timon. We had very nice talks and I spent a good time… (lese mehr in Trips)

Glenn, truck driver, pick me up in Kamloops. Great ride, interesting person, offered me lunch!!!!! Refused to share the price. Offered me to take his hotel room, and he will stay sleeping in the truck instead if I decided to stop hitchhiking for the day. Big traveller himself and hitchhiker.

Canmore to Calgary

After being dropped off on the highway in Canmore around 19:00, there was still some daylight so I decided to give it a try to reach Calgary. In 5 minutes I got picked up by a Engin and his daughter. I was the first hitchhiker he picked up in his life. Very nice person who travelled a lot as well. Made a detour to drop me off at my friend's place directly.
