29. The 20iest of October : hitch-hiking from Budva to Dubrovnik.

image image imageAfter spending the night in a field near Budva, i hitch-hiked in front of a bakery for one hour and one driver gave me a lift to Kotor. I spent two hours there to visit this small town with its port and its castle. Then showing this sign with two letters ‘DU’ for Dubrovnik, one driver stopped and brought me to Risan which is something like 20 kilometers further. From there i decided to walk along the beautiful adriatic coast and hitch-hike at the same time. For 3 hours i walked with some breaks near the sea. I hitch-hiked from a bus stop where a camping car stopped. A french couple with a baby, running a live-concert bar in Tour in France.

We went to Dubrovnik together and i traveled with them for four days as we get along with each other very good. A very nice couple, Max and Claire with their baby Hadrien and their camping car which they called Simone.

They have lent me a tent where to sleep. We had dinners and lunches together. Dinners near the camping car, cooking muscles with pastas for one evening and some brochettes on a barbecue accompanied with rice for an other evening. We spent great time sharing stories, food, beers, kilometers and walks through Dubrovnik and Zadar. I was lucky to have met them.

We stopped several times in camps to find a place to sleep. In one of them we stopped and walked near it to find an abandonned area with empty and destroyed luxury hotels, buildings and holidays places left after the balkan war.

Max and Claire were great and very helpful with me by asking with me in one gas station to several drivers if they could give me a lift to Zagreb where i wanted to go. Max and Claire were coming back to France and we had to leave each other.

Definitely my best hitch-hiking experience. A spontaneous and great meeting.
