Kavala is a city in Greece.

Hitchhiking out

East towards Xanthi, Komotini, Alexandropouli, Turkey

Get bus #3 or bus #11 out of the city as far as the cemetary (or as far as it goes in that direction). This is Amerikanikou Erythrou Stavrou (road 2) and it goes straight onto the E90 in the direction of the cities listed above.

Hitchhiking in

You can get dropped off at the highway exit next to Kavala, whih is good because it means you don't have to find a lift going exactly to that place, but can also accept any ride going past it. It is an easy, although rather long walk down the winding road, with cars zooming past you. It is downhill all the way though, and the road leads straight into the city centre. You can even try sticking your thumb out as you walk.

Accommodation and Sleep

There are abundant wild camping opportunities in the woodland to either side of the road down into Kavala. This seems like a city where sleeping out would never be a problem. One good option is to take bus 24 (it pass near Aristotelus square) until one of the last bus stops: ΣΧΟΛΕΙΟ. When you get off the bus, walk 50-100m forward in the same sidewalk and you'll find a path which goes between the trees. 100 m. later, you can get out the path and go down a bit and you'll find a more or less flat and big space where to sleep out of people view.
