“Travels to a Different Time” : 21stJuly1975: Somewhere in Netherlands: Dopester in a 404 Peugeot: Germany Depressing?

Went down for breakfast with a litre of milk. I hopped on a train that would take me to the highway heading to Hamburg. Thank goodness for the cool day as hot weather can sap your energy. I passed by a hitchhiker to get a spot and in 5 minutes a lift in a 404 Peugeot. We also picked up an Irish guy. The car reeked of hash. A crazy guy but what fun. We took the ferry to Hamburg which was only an hour trip. In Germany the driver said Germany depressed him so he altered his route to Paris by passing through Amsterdam. Perfect! We powered on until 23:00 ending up just past the Dutch border. We found a camping site for a washroom break and found a farmer’s field to sleep in and the driver slept in his car and the Irish guy and I shared my tent.
