This is Anouk. She’s a lovely person from Utrecht, a city in the Netherlands. We met at our hostel in Seville and got along great, so one day we decided to take a day trip to Cadiz for the beach. We e-hitchhiked there with an app called Blablacar, and also stopped by a tapas place for lunch.

In solo travel, connections happen fast, and 6 days of spending time with a fellow traveler can feel like a lifetime. And more than six months later I visited her in the Netherlands! The last picture in this gallery is of her in her home city of Utrecht, minutes after she introduced me to Dutch street food sandwiches called Broodjes.
