You Never Know Who Will Pick You Up (Hitching in Greece)


It was our first day of cycling in Greece, the temperature was up to 40 degrees and we had ended up in Drama, rather than Thessaloniki - an unexpected plan, putting us behind schedule. There was no other option other than to try and hitch-hike to Thessaloniki and get back on track.
