About

I'm a Hungarian hitchhiker, 21, named also as Judy. My nick is the same on Couchsurfing for Budapest.

Early experiences (:

My first hitching was when I had 14-15 years, I was in Szántód at the Lake Balaton, and I really had to catch a bus in Siófok. I was alone, and I could make the 15 kms with 3 cars. I reached the bus. Next I had to reach the train in Mosonmagyaróvár from a little village in the very early morning. No cars passed in about one hour while I was walking in the right direction. I gave up and I sat down in the busstop. In 2 minutes a car stopped, and gave me a ride, but I wasn't hitchhiking at all. How many times happened with you that somebody stopped when you were sitting in a busstop? For me this was the only one. Strange. I was 16, alone, about 10 kms. The third time was because of a missed last bus with a friend, 20 kms. Fourth the same situation, but with my mother.


Professional career (:

Then I met pite, and we started our career with a not very successful trip from Budapest to Prague. We could make it only to Vienna. A few months later some Bulgarian friends encouraged us to hitchhike in their country, and no one can stop us since then. It was in 2006. Until the 27th of October, 2008, I made approximately 20 500 km. Countries: Hungary, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Sardegna, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Ukraine, Macedonia, Czech Republic

Statistics

Longest hitching: 1655 km, from Paris to Szeged, about 27 hours Shortest ride: about 200 m

Total: appr. 20 500 km until the 25th of October, 2008

Advices

Turkish drivers? Not for women alone. Even with a man you have to say that you're married, show your finger like there would be a ring. My most unpleasant experiences were with Turkish truckdrivers. One was drunk, some wanted sex or to take me to Turkey. Nothing happened, but I was quite frightened, wishing to get out of the truck. So never again, at least alone.
