Hitchhiking

Read about our adventures on the road - the exhilaration of being picked up for the first time hitchhiking before we even wrote the sign, being stuffed in the boot of a car, entertaining Swiss children in France, being dropped off in the freezing middle of nowhere on a mountain and the struggles of communicating without knowing the local language. We met incredible people from every imaginable demographic who spared their time to help us on our journey and we are eternally grateful!

Wild and never without schnaps: Innsbruck

Wild and without a ride

It’s cold. It’s raining. Not only is there not a pub open in this god forsaken village, but there is also no traffic in it; understandably I guess. We’re leaving Tragöß and Grüner See for new adventures to Spiegelsee and the surroundings at Schladming. We wave our biker friends good bye as they screech past our […]

Wild and without a clue how to hitchhike

Hitchhiking for over three months, carrying all of your belongings and shelter in your rucksack requires a lot preparation and money. After spending many, many smackers on equipment, from a tent to a french press (Girl needs her coffee!), only to discover in the process that so many more items are needed, you have to […]
