Hitchhiking to Elf-Town

Where did you say we are going to? To the Town of the Elfs, Lena said, serious but smiling frankly. We came from France hitchhiking with her dog, had stayed overnight with our driver and were on our way to Barcelona.

But first we had to follow an alternative route, leading to a special place, Lena decided. Getting off the main roads, we managed to arrive at Pueblo de los Duendes with three cars and within two hours. We stayed to enjoy this magical place in the hearth of Catalunya - a maze made out of wood - and got one ride out of there, to Barcelona.

Am I Brave Enough?

My thumb was up but my knees were shaking in anticipation of what could possibly happen. It was exciting, like a first date with a girl who I admired for a long time. Today was my first time long distance hitchhiking.
