  • NYE-Gathering Vienna/Austria

30.12.16/03.01.17 - Vienna - Austria - NYE: Hey Hitchers! After last years very successful nye-gathering in Vienna I will revive it in the way that I invite all the lonely hitchers on the road around Vienna to share the next 2-3 days! I have 4 people already over and there might come the one or the other. Prepare for free food from the dumpsters and a cozy atmosphere. Stick to the houserules, we are not having a drinking party although someone might have the one or the other zip of beer. It will be a safe space for everyone. Gathering will be dissolved on 3rd of Jannuary! Share with anyone on the road around Vienna if you know them! Contact: Facebook or email FB Post in Hitchgathering Group
