Kinds of people you see when hitchhiking

watch I was Hitchhiking in Europe during my 6 weeks there, and here’s a little observation about the different kinds of people that I saw, when doing so.

source link Usually girls, or kids with their families or others who’ve probably not seen many hitchhikers, but are friendly. This is good and and very encouraging for me. It keeps me going.

You don’t exist for these people and they can’t see you. Mostly old people and single ladies.

“Not going there, mate”, “My car is full, sorry” … and the likes. Mostly young adults.

What they see, doesn’t make sense to them. Why would anyone be on the road like that?

Who never stop.

Never stopped in Europe but used to stop for me in Canada.

These people stop for you because they want to help you. They make sure you’re comfortable, and don’t have trouble deviating a little to get you to a nice spot.

They stop for you because they know what hitchhiking is and have probably done it at some point in their lives.

 

I’m missing a lot of categories, but this covers most of the people that I noticed.
