April 21st, Day 7
Dmytro and Kostantyn conquered Frankfurt! After their performance on one of the streets, Bon Jovi canceled the concert in the city as well as Scorpions canceled another farewell tour! The success surprised even the guys themselves. More than 30 euros for half an hour! They decided that they would definitely return to Frankfurt, because there was a generous and loyal audience xD
Afterwards the guys checked out of the hotel and headed for the meeting with Mrs. Consul Alla Polyova. They enjoyed tea and a nice conversation. Mrs. Consul told them about work in Frankfurt and kindly arranged one of her colleagues to drive the guys outside the city to a hitchhiking spot.
Due to Easter the guys failed to send postcards to our supporters. They will surely do it in their next city. Do you remember what you need to do, that Dmytro can send you a postcard from #DostupnoEurotrip
On their way out of the city our hitchhikers met Jonni from Finland. He also has been hitchhiking for three months without money and running a blog. He supports our idea of #DostupnoEurotrip
and that travelling can be cheap. There shouldn't be any barriers or obstacles. People like to create difficulties but all you have to do is to get ready and go!
Our travelers couldn't catch any car for a long time, so they decided to change their place: they reached the airport (9.80 euros for two). They went on the hitchwiki website, found a convenient place and twenty minutes later some Polish guys picked them up. Their route showed to turn much earlier but they went further to help our guys to get to Kaiserslautern.
Lots of people were stopping by and tried to help guys out. Unfortunately, their routes did not match. But then guys met Doriana. She was simply a Saint! She took guys with her despite the fact that she was going to other destination. Dima and Kostya packed wheelchair and backpacks into a teeny-tiny car that was already packed, barely shut the door and set off. Doriana drove them to town called Kusel, gave her dinner to guys and additional 20 Euros. They had heartfelt goodbye and then she drove off to her husband.
During the night, boys got stuck at the part of the road between Kusel and Trier. In Trier, which is next to the Luxembourg border, guys will get greeted by Katya. She used to be Dima's love in junior school (emoji hearts). Now she has a lovely family and two kids. Dima lost his chance at 4th
And while they are near Kusel: night, road, forest, starfall. Romantic, right? The cold that breaks down to the bones, no place where to set the tent. 90 km from Trier. No one stops. Fortunately, there was a gas station, where they spent the night.
The day was a bit tense. For the day they spent 11.80 euros. Twice talked to the German police on the road. Fortunately, they did not get any fine. Although the first thought was that they will get fined. Police officers were more concerned about Dmytro's and Kostya's safety. Asked not to hitchhike on dangerous road sections. Also the boys had a little fight and they did not want to talk to each other. However, everything is already in the past :) In the morning they got to Trier.
