From the cabin of a truck the kilometers unhurriedly pass by. Hitchhiking Europe feels like wandering around one’s own yard. And with the familiar football chat going on between puffs of smoke at the front of the cabin, I sink … Read More
Our friends from Bhopal had invited us for a family lunch in a fancy club. The place was classy and the food exquisite. A rich buffet offered anything one could have dreamt of. Indian food from South to North, Chinese, Italian … Read More
It must have been Cortázar who convinced me that dreams have everything to do with fuzz. They crawl at night underneath your bed, and while you are busy dreaming something else, hide in a corner for months or years, waiting to … Read More
After a week of imaginary travels in Zugdidi we finally feel ready to head towards the place that had been haunting our own imagination long before starting this travel. The land of the Svans is just 106 km away from … Read More
Nobody knocks on the door after 9 o’clock. The neighbours have just left home after some wine and chat, the witch from down the road never knocks but bangs and would just push the door shouting “Mananaaa” – my grandma’s … Read More
The curtain raises. The transparent moon that impatiently plunges in the sky long before sunset grins in the background over saw-toothed mountains, while we energetically thumb up in the icebound outskirts of Erzurum. Walking down the road we meditate upon … Read More

One would think that crossing from the UK to France is pretty easy when already on the ferry boat. But hitchhiking is a misterious enterprise, that can take you off the road when least expected. Who would have thought that the first petrol station to drop uo off after the Cale’s port is in the next country?
That’s how we got to spend the night on the Belgian seaside dunes.
