On the 16th of March I hit the road and was headed towards Warsaw. We started together with Platschi (www.platschi.tk) at Grunewald highway exit and made it quite rapidly to Michendord. There we split up after being dropped by some German who used to hitchhike a lot when he was young. I put my thumb up and barely listened to 2 mp3s when Polish truck stopped and took me to the border. The spot was just excellent, even though the cars were driving already fast. Wind was a bit annoying though, cause every time the truck was passing by I was getting this blow of evil wind on my face. Anyway after a couple of minutes I got a lift to Łódź. Young driver was quite funny. He was driving his 5 years old BMW 525. We got to Łódź in no time and then he took 20 km ~ detour to make sure I’m at the good spot.
From the spot where I was dropped, I barely put on hat on my head when the car stopped. This was awesome guy who was flying on these paragliders. He dropped me right in Warsaw at the place where I was supposed to go, cause he lived near by.
On the 17th of March, the day after I was going to go back home. After perhaps 5 minutes hitching I got a lift to Mława, which is over 100km ahead. The guy didn’t stop talking on the phone, business shit. Then I got this lift from a super-friendly trucker to Olsztyn + detour to the hitching spot. Actually it was one of the few detours truckers have ever taken for me. Whole town was covered with snow and it kept snowing. The weather wasn’t so awful though. Anyway I got a lift after a couple of minutes straight away to the city where I live. Day was more than succesfull, more days like this please !
