25.02.2013 - 25.02.2013
9.00 AM. - Meeting Clotilde at the bus station, taking the bus to the hitch-spot.
10.00 AM. - Thumbs in the air, sign prepared, smiling and waiting since an hour..still nothing
a few minutes later - Finally the first car stops, takes us like 15kms, then drops us in the middle of nowhere.
it's freezing cold and it starts raining - yeah - Vive la Bretagne...!
Come on everybody!
Clap your hands!
I`m gonna sing my song
It won't take long!
Come on let's twist again,
like we did last summer!
Yeah, let's twist again,
like we did last year!
nothing better than a nice warm-up twist when waiting by the roadside
people like that, we get some smiles, makes us smile too
that's how we find a car!
another 100 kms done, but dropped of at a shitty place again
biggest surprise of the day was when some Parisian bourgeois couple stopped - took their time to carefully place the cigars, leather jackets, fur coats etc. in the boot. - and let us get in their car
we felt quite surprised and uncomfortable though in that big, brand new, clean car, with our dirty Docs, but hey, we had our last car!
around 3 PM - we finally arrived in Caen
visiting the castle, old town, café - waiting our couchsurfer to finish work
6 PM - it popped into our minds to buy a Norwegian phrasebook - so we headed to the first Fnac and got ourselves one
7 PM - arriving at Marine's - having dinner, wine
9 PM - private concert party at someones house - we had great fun, nice music, cool people - like that guy with the fox fur scarf - hilarious!
11 PM - after 2 hours of hesitating where the dude with the weird accent came finally I get onto him and his friend. (Canada and US)
12 PM - time to leave - first night in the same bed with Clotilde
