    Hitching in Europe post COVID

    I’ve been planning to set out hitching in Europe from the UK for a while. What’s the situation with hitching in Europe at the moment with COVID? Are people willing to pick up hitchhikers? What are your experiences at the moment?

    Hitching with a dog?

    Looking for tips on hitching a ride with a dog. I understand that it is considerably harder. I'm gonna assume most if any rides would most likely be in the bed of a truck. Has anyone here had luck doing so?
