European Hitchgathering 1-14 August 2018
Hitchgathering is the name of a series of international hitchhiking gatherings held in Europe and Northern America since 2008.
Beloved brothers and sisters of the hitchhiking tribe!
The Hitchgathering is a yearly European festival that celebrates hitchhiking, hitchhikers and connected values such as faith in humanity and wanderlust. This is the 11th year.
For the first time the Hitchgathering will happen at the area of a Rainbow Gathering, more precisely the national Rainbow of Serbia. The gathering of the tribes meets the gathering of the thumbs!
The Hitchgathering lasts from 1 till 14 August, with 5 till 11 August the central week, when we expect the most of you being here!
Should you like to arrive earlier or stay longer, добродошли (dobrodošli) - welcome, the Serbian Rainbow Family of Living Light welcomes you at the same place from 18 July till 21 August!
(European Hitchgathering and Serbian Rainbow Gathering happen at the same place and time, the place which we will share).
At the location there will be drinkable tap water. Dumpster diving will probably not be so interesting. We can buy at cost price really cheap food (it's Serbia!) from the local farmers and this will be cheap. The Rainbow would help us with that, as they of course are taking care of healthy food anyway.
In the area there are several streams, we will see how suitable they are for swimming or washing.
Although we are hosted by the Serbian Rainbow gathering, there is no ban on non-vegetarian food and no ban on smoking and drinking a bit of alcohol.
There are fields and wooded land on which we will camp.
Serbian Hitchgathering 2018 switches back to the original place:
- 1 km north of Razana (church) on road 21
The place is right along the main road 21 between Valjevo and Kosjeric/Pozega. From Valjevo, it is 1 km after two 180 degrees curves in the road. It's at the west side of the road, there is a rainbow flag at the entrance to the house.
Coordinates: https://goo.gl/maps/h24pSkzWC4R2 44°05'02.9"N 19°55'04.1"E 44.084147, 19.917813
From railway station Razana it is a 4 km walk through the hills. We mark the way from the station to the camp from the station! From the station to road 21 and then left to Razana it is about 6.5 km. If you arrive at the old location coz you didn't know the change, you'll find a sign on road 21 directing you to the new location.
See you all soon at the gathering!!
Gathering is 130 km south of the motorway Zagreb-Belgrade (A1 exit 4, Pyмa (Ruma)), 145 km west of the motorway Belgrade-Sofia (A1 exit Пожаревац (Požarevac)), 120 km SSW of Belgrade
Travelling to the gathering from far away: consider taking one of the three daily trains from Beograd Centar or from Resnik (last at 19:35 / 19:53) to the station Razana. Resnik is on the new A1 motorway and there actually is a busstop on the A1. From that busstop it's a 2.5 km walk to the station. The old motorway runs just behind Beograd Centar station and there is a petrol station only 0.3 km from that station. The ticket for 120 km is just under 500 RSD (4.25 euro).
