After our experience in Salzburg we were quite sure that it won't be that hard to get to St Gallen since it's just 211 km from Innsbruck and it takes about 2 hours by car so it seemed impossible to not make it in one day even if we would have to wait a lot... We were wrong. It was the most interesting, adventurous and longest hitchhiking we have ever done in this short distance. It took us 2 days, 7 rides , an ambulance car, an incredible night, a lot of good hearted people and a crazy lady to get to Switzerland. We thought it's worth it to share this story so here are the details.
We felt a bit lost because we had no idea where we are anymore. We took one more ride back to the highway and right before it got dark a really nice guy took us close to the Swiss border. The town name was Feldkirch. We knew that we can't hitchhike anymore. It was dark and it was raining quite hard.
We found a bar with free wifi and sent some desperate couchrequests that maybe somebody will answer and we don't have to camp outside. At around 11pm we left the bar and went searching for a nice place to camp. Well everything was wet, it was really dark and we were tired, so we pitched the tent in the middle of the city in a small park. A guy called us form CS but he wasn't in town so he couldn't help. We went to "sleep" in the tent tired, wet and cold... and after half an hour the phone rang at 00.30pm...

We feel really lucky because we met so many kind and helpful people just in two days!!! People are great! :)I think we will never forget these two crazy days.
