As you all certainly remember, the plan was that, instead of going home from Paris the same way we had already crossed Germany, we would take a pretty long detour North. For no other reason than hitchhiking a few hundred kays in the Netherland. No survey of the babe-hitchhikability of Western Europe is complete without our favourite upstuck Northern friends, right? It only takes the guts to risk death through immobility. I was up for the challenge. And Weirdo… Who cares about him anyway.

One very hard but from an easily accessible spot, one in the heart of the Massy-Palaiseau banlieue that looked like medium-hard, and one for which we had to ride the S-bahn for more than an hour but that dropped us in a village by a péage. So easy.
An easy spot out of a megapolis? We just had to check it out.

Case you were wondering what kind of crazy adventures I was up to since last Friday: nothing really. No plan + no opportunity = we went back to sedentary life for a few days. Which is not without its perks. Namely, playgrounds. Continue reading Playground break
