Hitch Hiking Adventure

Last week I tried my hand on my first long haul hitch hiking trip. Antwerp to Heidelberg: a 450 km long trip over well connected motorways. We left in the morning and were almost immediately joined by the rain. It was harder than we thought. It started off slowly in Antwerp. We got our first... Continue Reading →
