In late April SIB Amsterdam hitchhiked from Amsterdam all the way to the German metropolis of Frankfurt am Main in a fierce competition. Nine teams of two, all vying for the coveted first place, struck out from Amsterdam at 7:30 in the morning to the stopover in the quaint little town of Venlo. After quizzing the contestants on some obscure phrases in the unique local dialect of Venlo, we sent them on their way to their final destination. Hitchhiking from Venlo to Frankfurt turned out to be quite a challenge with the first place team arriving at 17:45 and the second place team a mere 3 minutes later, while a couple of victory pictures were taken. All teams eventually arrived at our hotel, some only deep into the night, and after a deserved night sleep we set out to explore the city and enjoy the local cuisine. We visited several of Frankfurt’s beautiful churches, saw the seat of power on the Römerberg and ate all kinds of German sausage from currywurst and bratwurst to Bavarian sausage at the Hauptwache Café. We then split up into smaller groups in the afternoon, some going shopping in the popular 6-story shopping mall, MyZeil, whereas others, including myself, went to gush at dead animals in the museum of natural history. At the end of the day, we took a shot at exploring Frankfurt’s nightlife, drinking, and clubbing. Frankfurt proved to be a fun challenge as a hitchhiking destination, and a great city with many amazing sites to see. It would not surprise if SIB returns there sometime in the future.
