Yeah 3 rides! Some German musician folk who speak Dutch with each other, 2 Romanian fellas who say they where going to Dortmund, and drove quite near Hannover which was odd because they changed their mind regarding on some phone calls. Chatting with my friend Justin here, he reckons they where most probably involved in moving girls around, they where kinda dodgy. And also a super nice German family who live about 30 ks away but yep u guessed - it drove me to the door, yeah it's just how I pictured traveling when I was a younger.

The trip went great! But I'm actually not that sure about the spot at the bus lane. I think there was hardly anyone driving in our direction. After about 1 hour however a very cool former hitchhiker stopped for us and brought us to the next petrol station even though it wasn't his direction either. After that it was no problem to get to Bremen. The next day hitchhiking out of Bremen was the most difficult part, it was like a cultural shock suddenly facing all these ignorant or disgusted glances from the German drivers. So different from France & Netherlands, kinda sad. Thanks again for taking us in! Without you it probably would have been wild camping & a grumpy Sandra

My hitch to Berlin was o.k., took me 2 fucking day though, lol. didn't even make it to Germany the first day, slept in the bushes. but had a great ride from 2 hippies from Austria driving their bus around Europe. I camped with them the first night, they didn't want to cross the border with all the hash they had so we had to stop and smoke it all, and had a nice campfire on which we roasted bread doe on sticks. very nice friends, they gave me their contacts to stay with them in the country side of Austria.

So have fun man, I'll see ya when I am back in A'dam rock n roll

Hitchhiking was easy today, got a ride from the Liftersplaats in A'dam directly to Muiden service station. The guys who picked me up went to Rotterdam but were so friendly to drive a detour :), from there to Amersfoort-Noord, bad spot but got a ride in a VW Kaefer directly to Voorthuizen,there hitched to service station Lucasgat, got a ride by the worst smelling truck ever to Hengelo servicestation, and from there directly a ride from a Danish guy going all the way to Norway!! (grrr, missed chance!) 3,5 hours, no problem. Thanks for Friday night,guess I'll visit A'dam again soon :)
