“Travels to a Different Time” : 15August1973: Bled to Munich: Mega Ride with My German Friends: Pizza and Beer in Munich

The hitchhiking Gods have been extra special to me today. Up at 5:30 for a hot shower and then gobbled down breakfast and thumb out by 7 a.m. Half an hour later picked up by the German kids that had taken me to the ferry to Hvar in Yugoslavia and asked me to join them. But I had already been to Hvar so we parted our separate ways. So like a week later they are heading back to Germany and they pick me up. I had only known them for a few hours but it was like a big reunion as their VW bus picked me up! We cleared the Austrian and German borders no problem. What beautiful scenery in Austria. The Austrian and German roads are superb in comparison to the derelict Yugoslavian roads. After travelling nonstop for 6 hours we stopped at a farmer’s field in Germany and had a big, delicious lunch of spaghetti and meat sauce.  In the early evening we ended up in Munich and passed through it picking up some pizza and beer. Pizza! You must be kidding! Slept in my tent in the farmer’s field.
