Early August 2008. Radek, Pascal, Martin and Lily embarked on a hitchhiking adventure to Paris. One common goal united them: to arrive under the Eiffel Tower on August 8th to be part of the first European Hitchhiking Week.
Martin, [the Suit] decided to dress up to increase his chances from Copenhagen. Radek, [the Philosopher] opted for starting from Spanish country roads to embrace mother nature and escape the smells of large motorways. Pascal, [the all-worked-out Quebequois], resolved to hitch rides all the way from Asia to make it a little bit more interesting. Lily, [the first-timer] hoped she would not become the prey of some ill-intentioned male counterparts .
