How far would you go to win a stage?

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

Our team song "Please tell Rosie"! Some good coffee Energy and motivation Bubbles Minerva, Estefany and JMA

Your Grandma's opinion:

A story from Estefany: Today I was.talking with my grandma , I was telling her about the trip to Bulgary and I actually didn't want to tell her about the hitchhiking part, so I rather told her like "well, we will go by car... But my friends doesn't have one...but we'll figure it out.." and she told me, "ah yeah! You're gonna hitchhike, I'm really glad about it, it sure will be so exciting!!!" There you go, we are not only a cool team, but also got the coolest grannies ever.

You are ...

... the Kings and Queens of the Road!

How do you imagine your final arrival in Tsigov Chark?

Backwards on a donkey, followed by cheering village inhabitants, some drums and trumpets, which are performing our team song "Please tell Rosie"!

Ours might be the most unlikely team for this year's race! Two colombian girls and a giant german viking, joining our forces for the very first time for the amazing Tramprennen adventure. Together we create a hitchhiking monster wich speaks 5 languages, cook delicious food, create great music playlists, plays football, climbs and makes godamn good drawings! We all love our brothers and sisters (the family ones) reading and dumpster diving.

When we're not hitchiking, Jan runs social projects in Denmark, Minerva does the Med school in Kiel and Estefany pretends to be doing Art (but most of the time she just takes the sun by the mediterranean sea).

So, the guy that let us stay at his place bought us beer at the hippest place in drobeta because he plays tennis with the owner! Also, we noticed that you get drunk a lot faster when you are dehydrated. #sotanned #nowaterjustbeer

Because 3 lts of water were not enough for the bulgarian sun. Also, how long does it take for three colombians to cross a border? #alongfuckingtime

The reason why I had to fly home earlier...a speech at the company event of our team owner Gebr. Heinemann. And guess what: they handed me a check for 4.000 € (!!!) for VcA and Pro Asyl - I'm speechless.
