Hitchhiking in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

Hitchhiking in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands


No transport no rush!

Hitchhiking: the golden answer to budget travel It doesn’t cost a dime plus you can meet interesting people and get a sneak peak into their lives.

In Fuerteventura we were hitchhiking from Lajares to the beach in El Cotillo. It’s only a 10 Km ride and hitchhiking is very common across Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands. However it was our 1st time ever.

The very 1st cars had big yellow and white corporate stickers on them. The tourists that were driving them looked at us with big scared eyes No dear tourists we are not planning to kill you we just want a ride.

After few minutes a beautiful camper van appeared. Anna said “This one would be fantastic!.” The camper stopped and gave us a lift. It was a woman from Berlin. Together with her 2 kids and husband she was spending 2 weeks of holidays on Fuerteventura.

This beautiful old camper van had come with their apartment rental. They explored the island of Fuerteventura and even hopped over for a night to Lanzarote.

It’s an old saying you always meet twice in life. The next day we ran into each other on the beach in El Cotillo. This is when we took this photo of her beautiful automobile.
