This blog was started once upon a time when a young girl at school didnt know better but thought otherwise. So the way earlier entries can be crass and words inappropriate so please don't judge. As now the person has evolved into someone older and wiser (hopefully) ..:.... But some of the entries were classic and hilarious so I don't have the heart to delete them :@ Well we were all young (read:wild) once, right?

My Crazy babe hitchhiked to Paris

My babe Cat had been living in Germany, India, Ireland and South Africa for the last 2 years, pursuing her jolly good enlightenment on human nature and social culture and how woman in some African tribes increase in value with the number of guys she had sex with.. and how this and that country is so dysfuncational.. and bleah.. ok nevermind, basically, she's taking Masters in Sociology. I can't wait til she comes back and tell me how disgusting the people of the world is, all over again.


The thing is. She wrote me an email.
She just hitch hiked to Paris from Germany. (Doesn't it sound like what a normal Singaporean wouldn't experience in their lifetime? Kudos to her courage)


Here's the story..


So I just got back from the craziest trip of my
life...
Freddie and I were both broke as a joke but we
wanted to go to Paris...so we decided to hitch hike to Paris...the way there was a bit of a disaster....But we got to Paris in the end...after almost being deported at the French border (because I didn't bring my passport) and very nearly escaping getting raped by 2 Turkish guys...(Celly-Geez..)
then we got another ride with a guy who just wanted to have us in his car eventhough he was going in the opposite direction of Paris...(Celly- ?????)
so we were on the road for about 5hrs getting
from Freiburg to Strasbourg and then back to Freiburg...

we were gonna give up and just head home , but we met another guy who was smoking the biggest splif in the world, who was going to STrasbourg...so
we took the ride with him back to Strasbourg for the 2nd time in 5hrs...then we took a train to Paris from there because it was already dark and it's too dangerous to hitch hike at night...but Freddie almost got thrown out of the train half way because we got
the discount tickets for people under 26 and she was
26...so she kicked up a bit fuss, started crying and
threatened to hitch hike to Paris on her own from the
next station...and the conductor let her off...hahaha...brilliant...

So we finally got to Paris at about 12am...but the hostel that we booked just before leaving was fully booked (no surprise!) and we couldn't afford to stay
at any of the hotels...a 2 star hotel was 103 euros a night!

Besides, they were all closed at that time of the night...so we only had the option of sleeping at the metro or at the airport...we took the airport option in the end because the metro was too cold... (Celly - hmm..sounds familiar..)

So that's where we spent our first night...second night we stayed at a "couchsurfer" place...not sure if you've heard of it...but it's an online community
where people all over the world offer their couches
for travellers to stay for free...so we found this hippie living in Paris who was willing to host us for free...was a really cool guy...totally messy but super nice...cooked us dinner and all...you should check this website out...www.couchsurfing.com (Celly- weoww.. Cool huh! Free couch stay in Paris.. how come last time I didn't meet such friendly Parisian in Paris????)

Anyway...we set off early yesterday to avoid getting stranded in the mid of the night...but we were very fortunate with our rides back yesterday...and managed
to get home in 7 hours with 4 cars...the French people on the road were really nice...bought us coffee and all...we tried to hitch a ride from this entourage of
French tanks on the autobahn...but they only waved and smiled at us...too bad....would have been cool...a traffic police also stopped to tell us to be careful...he offered to take one of us as a joke...but ofcos cannot lah...

So that's a summary...was intense...crazy...but we had a great time...we spent less than 80 euros for the 3 days...wasn't too bad...now I'm back in Freiburg...it's nice to be back in my own bed...

Ok...gotta go...meeting friends in town for coffee...such is life in Freiburg...coffee in town is
the highlight of the day...damn sad...

MUAH MUAH!
Cat

Tsk...


And I think travelling the world really changed her. She's a total tough cake now, eh.




Ahh.... I think I want to try hitchhiking from Bukit Batok to Yishun.

YOU THINK ANYONE WILL HELP ME???

PREASEEE HORRR.. Singaporeans are so KIASI!

And you think we have couchsurfer member in Singapore?? I'll be damned. But maybe hor...

But also, I think, hitch hiking from Jakarta to Bali, noone would survive either.
Generally, angmohs still have a lot more integrity than Asians, I think.
Though of course crime rates are high in Europe too. *shrugs*.. Just thank God she's fine.
