Has anybody had much experience hitch hiking in Europe? I travelled to New Zealand last year and did it quite successfully, making about 180-200 miles in a day in about 8 rides. I've been looking at doing a bit of travelling in Europe - maybe just Germany, depending on funds - and was wondering if anybody has ever done it, or had any notable experiences. For Germany especially, it is often recommended in travel literature. I wouldn't try it in Moldova or Russia, etc.
