We've only had our camper for 3 months so far and we've been in it almost every weekend possible! Before we brought our camper we had an air tent and we had to fit every thing in our car and it was a nightmare it took the fun out of camping for us!☹ We'd always wanted a VW campervan it was our dream to just get up and go exploring seeing some of the most beautiful places within the UK!🏞🏕🏖🗺 So in April we turned our dreams into reality and it's honestly the best thing we've done together! We are living for the weekend as we both work 9-5 monday - friday jobs and it's 100% worth it🌞🌝

Day 5 Arriving in Dover
After staying for one night with my couchsurfing host in Dover I made my first hitchhiking sign to try to get a ride on a ferry to Calais to save the 30£ footpassanger cost.
It was my first time creating a sign and my first time trying to hitchhike haha
As I walked to the city center I meet Alison from Canada next to the port at a bus stop and trying to get a ride too
Alison is very experienced and hitchhiked for 26 years around the world
I went to her to learn how to do it and then we tried it together for 2h
Unfortunately it was raining all day and not the best spot to get a ride.
After 2h she left and we're trying to buy a ticket instead of waiting in the rain.
I stayed and gave it another try but I also didn't had luck for the next hour.
After a while I looked online if there is any other spot nearby and I found that there is one spot just 15 minutes by walk at a bus stop just in front of a petrol station and a roundabout.
As I arrived after 15 minutes a lovely 77 year old guy from Yorkshire stopped and picked me up :)
Since it was only 4pm and our ferry would left at 6:45pm to Calais we would have a bit to wait so we went to a pub where we had 1 and a half pints of beer haha
We continued our way to the port until I recognised that Alison cane back to the streets to hitchhike again.
I told my driver about her and we turned around and picked her up as well
What a coincidence that we got a ride in the same car and on the same ferry.
The unexperienced hitchhiker got the ride for both of us 😎😎 For high resolution image downloads and to see more of my journey follow me on Patreon .
