First time hitchhiking
If you've never hitchhiked before, you have to get over your virgin hitchhiking fear. Every hitchhiker went through this. The first time, standing on the side of the road, heart pounding.
To get over this, just do it!
Prepare yourself: buy a map, check out the Top Tips, other pages on this wiki, other hitchhiking websites. Make sure you know what a good spot means, and that you know some good spots on the trip you're making.
First time hitchhiking doesn't necessarily mean a short trip.
- I tried to hitchhike before, but those were complete failures, without a map, with no clue about hitchhiking. Then one moment, living in Paris, I found myself with 200 euros and the wish to go to Barcelona. So I tried again! It was great!
