HitchFail of the Year

Philosopher Jagger once said “you can’t always get what you want” and that’s what happened as I couldn’t find a boat willing to take me to #Sicily from #Malta and therefore was forced to use the extortionately priced ferry! After more than three weeks in Malta and almost one week at the marina, enough was enough, and I’m very sad for it. Mick Jagger also said “but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need!” and though it was frustrating, the people from La Marina Trattoria were so kind to feed me and give me freeContinue reading

Another Boat to Hitch

Oh it’s the same stuff again as a couple of weeks ago! Hopefully I have a chance to go #boathitching tomorrow on a big #yacht to #Sicily, thanks to the help of this lovely lady at the marina’s “captainerie” who sees the benefit of “help me help you”. Now let’s hope it’s a yes from this (Spanish) captain who makes the decisions of who’s joining. Would be awesome to sail away tomorrow morning not having to stick around for six days again 😀 #fingerscrossed #wishfulthinking #Malta #Valetta #hitchhiking #ohcaptainmycaptain #yachtingn #sailing #Italia #barcastop (at Sottovento)  651Shares651

Ultimate #hitchselfie on Malta!

I’ve always wanted to take a #hitchselfie like this! Yep, that red car stopped right when I was taking this picture and the guy make a nice drive around #Marsalforn and invited me for some guitar playing at his house before dropping me at Ramla Bay to go swimming. I hope I can snap more of these perfectly timed pictures! Now I’m back at the Grand Harbour looking for a boat to #Sicily.. let’s hope it doesn’t take six days this time! #hitchhiking #boathitching #Malta #Italy #Italia #barcastop #yachting #yacht (at Gozo, Malta)  651Shares651

Yacht-Hitch Finale

Two and a half days on a boat gives you plenty of time to contemplate your next moves and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing on the boat. The first day on a boat is always a little awkward since you don’t have the sea legs yet, but you can get used to it. We had a prediction of zero wind, but in the end we sailed most of the journey. With no WiFi I couldn’t update you and having only five cigarettes I had to stretch them out, but these “losses” don’t compare to what I’ve learnt and experiencedContinue reading

Epic Sailing Yacht Hitch Arrival in Malta

ARRIVED IN #MALTA!! It was an exciting 2,5 days #hitchhiking the #yacht of these two lovely people from #Lebanon and the #USA from the marina on #Corfu all the way to this small island nation. I’m very happy to have found them before I might have given up on the whole #boathitching thing and it was a great way to start learning more about sea sailing and a good test on whether I like being on boats for a long time. The verdict is that I freaking love it! Now I’m trying to get information on the courses I mightContinue reading

Fruitful Times at the Marina

Six days and six nights later, I’ve found a boat with a Lebanese-American couple headed directly to #Malta! I will meet them again at 22:00 tonight to also sleep on their boat and at 8:00 tomorrow we should set sail with the boat “Boysterous” 😀 if there’s no updates from this account for the next three days it means I’m #boathitching to my destination, so don’t worry in that case. I’m really excited for this great opportunity that has come along after a long day of disappointments. The three Italian guys I talked about earlier set sail this morning withoutContinue reading
