I really want to go to Latvia by hitchhike. I don't have a lot of experience with hitchhike so all help is welcome. I'm searching for cars that have a place for me, places to stay on my way and useful tips.

I'm a girl from 17 and i'm from belgium. I want to go during the christmasvacation. I speak dutch, english and french. If you have any help for me, please send it to my e-mail.


Thank you very much

I think you must beware of this way of travelling. A grilfriend of mine went to Latvia/Poland too by her own car, but when she was their on her own, she experienced totally different atmosphere than here in Holland.
Latvia is no Belgium or Holland...

I have been thinking about hitchhiking myself, but I decided to do that way of travel only when one of my friends joins me. Ofcourse the adventure is nice, but think of where you are going. And the crazy people around. Especially to places where the polictics differ so much form here.
-take care

Thank you for your advice. The thing is that I had some exchange camps this summer and I made a lot of friends and even some kind of boyfriend. I really want to see them back in Latvia, but I don't have the money to pay a trip to there. So this looks like the only solution for me.

I would not do it! There is no problem about Latvia, but Polland before it. Even a woman alone can be really painfull sometimes if you're not ravelling by plane, having somebody waiting for you in airport and taking you home.

think about it!
