After a long year of hitchhiking and making new friends, hitchBOT was due for a little vacation in Europe. It shined its wellies, packed a suitcase, and hopped on one of Air Canada’s new flights to Amsterdam. For three weeks it visited the Netherlands from June 7-24, 2015.
hitchBOT’s friends at Concordia Film | Theater | Expositie invited it to experience some of Twente’s most notable arts and culture locations. This included the Roombeek area in Enschede, the art villages Diepenheim and Ootmarsum, and Twickel Castle. hitchBOT also took part in popular events like Twente Biënnale, Kunst in het Volkspark, and Midzomerfeest Mariënheem.
hichBOT had the best time meeting the people of Twente and experiencing the Netherlands. Above is a short video about hitchBOT’s day in the park, where it met new companions.
