The hitchhikers guide through Romania

For all of you who have heard only frightening stories about hitchhiking: It is nothing but rumors!

I never hitchedhiked in Germany but we have something quite like it: www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de. It is a web site where everyone owning a car can leave their personal data and announce when they are going from a to b. You have to pay a small amount of money but it is much cheaper than the train. This way I was able to go home to Hamburg quite often when I was studying in Muenster.

When I came to Romania I would have never thought that I would do the "real" hitchhiking thing because of all the stories you hear about it. It took me a year to realize that hitchhiking is the only convenient way of travelling in Romania. Forget about trains and busses. They leave at horrible hours or arrive late or you have to wait a lot while changing trains. It happened to me at least five times that I was planning to go back by bus, train, or taxi and none of it was available. So the only way not to get stuck in the middle of the wilderniss is"ocasie". The hitchhiking system is probably the best developed system of public transport in Romania. I never have to wait long. AND: I tend to get sick (especially respiratory problems) in Romanian trains because the heating is to high. That is my number one reason for hitchhiking.
