BABKA TAKES A BREAK

Team Picture

How far would you go to win a stage?

Do you know the story how the hedgehog outran the bunny? Exactly. So basically, we wait till everbody has started from the starting point; then we take a break, and then wait for everybody to finally arrive at the goal. Simple. Effective. ;-) (alternative strategy: Pick up paolo pony and you are the winning team no matter what, as the sun continues to shine out of your behind and never sets.)

What shouldn't be missing in your hitchhiking-backpack?

the monsters (especially current monster number 4). an iron.

Your Grandma's opinion:

Every cake you bake, every ride you make, you gotta eat up and call. And never get into foreign people's car! ...but yeah, she is not to be trusted either.

You are ...

... hardcore experienced hitchhiking professionals

How do you imagine your final arrival to Boracko Jezero?

One week before everybody else - but only with half of the team. Wait, somehow...!?!

Babka is busy and withdraws from the race this year. We will not be racing on the same route as our beloved hitchmates, but we still enjoy the perks and support the race. You craziers! Besides all the good stuff happens when you take a break.

... However, a little bit earlier, in a far-away spot on the black sea coast, one hithchiker takes the secret "Balkan route" and travels backwards in time and space to see the marvels of the region and arrive earlier than necessary. We are the social team: anybody who truly cannot make it to Germany in time (or needs to leave early) and wouldn't mind a solitary route is welcome to join. We have some goodies on the way. Mind to be expanded. Route details will be posted soon.

A gladiator's meal. Ask for crafts-steampunk-model-waiter Filipe for the full experience.

Best wishes from Kitzbühel. Half of Babka takes a break in a wonderful ashram for practicing yoga and hiking. After 8 hours by train a cheerful woman gave me a ride for the last 7km. Mountains and silence are calling. Hope you lot have an amazing time on the roads <3 love, Anne

Leut, der finale Stand: von angedachten 2030km, ganze 248 km getrampt. Davon immerhin 2 Berge hoch und 2 runter. 5 Busse geracet, 4 Züge verpasst, die Sightseeingtour mit Taxi neu erfunden. Ca. 1400km Pause gemacht. Den Titel 'verkehrsgefährdend' erhalten. und vor allem schwindelerregende Höhen überlebt. Bin jetzt leider am Ende meiner Strecke, aber ich drücke euch fest und wünsch euch viel Spaß. Beste Route! Trampt weiter in den Sonnenuntergang!

Couldn't find a way to go through Albania, so I'm calling it a Tramprennen and heading back. Sorry to miss you guys, see you next time! This is where the route ends and it feels like a worthy one. Cheers
