Please add your comments/ideas to this list of cities. When adding proposals or suggestions, please keep in mind that the prevailing opinion at 789 was to have a sort of club/local community/people at or nearby the spot to help organizing the whole event. The visa-issues thing with Eastern European hitchhikers also can not be solved easily, the only solution at the moment would be to have the event in Moldova/Ukraine every year. So the general idea is to switch between Western and Eastern Europe yearly. If you do not agree with this point of view, please feel free to state your arguments!
