Hitchhiking in a Suit

Last week, I left the craziness of Istanbul to hit the road and hitchhike once more. Unfortunately, I was over-laden with all of my belongings from the past five months, including my winter clothing and suit. My backpack weighed over 20 kg, yet I had no tent and one sleeping bag.. between two people.

Rather than simply carrying my suit, I decided to try hitching in it while in Bulgaria. Unfortunately the temperature was around 30 degrees in the early hours of the morning and I soon had to take it off.

Here are my pictures of hitchhiking from that day.

    Love it! Reminds me of a friend who was so cold on a bus in Australia, he put his wetsuit on.

      Putting a wetsuit on to fight cold sounds logical. But cold in Australia… has he been to England?!

    I love hitchhiking and I have to ask if it was any easier dressed up?

      Unfortunately, despite it being early morning, it was already 30 degrees in Bulgaria, so I didn’t keep the suit on for very long. Thus I failed in my trial run, but I’d be willing to try it again in a cooler environment.

        Really? I think it should be easier since you look awesome! Let us know if its way more convenient when you tried it next time.
