Ok, for you NorCalians, imagine a road trip down to L.A. 5 hours right? Tons of rest stops usually filled with a diner, a McDonald's, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, whatevers. Fast food crap. And usually open all day, really late at night, or possibly all night.
Well in France, the restaurants and small cafeteria's close like normal restaurant hours. Because you know if you are on a road trip, you ONLY eat between 12h00 - 14h00 and 20h00 - 23h00. Yah, so Nina and I weren't aware of this. On our trip to and from Bretagne, we pretty much ate crap. But we LUCKED OUT once when we found a McDonald's that was open past 14h30 !
Check out all the delicious crap we ingested.
Cranky and camera shy
So the salads and fruit weren't that bad... but you can imagine the rest. =P Especially when you are tired and starving.
Oh yah, and the rest stops with only bathrooms have what they call Turkish toilets. (Or Chinese !)
Here is me driving right outside of Paris.
I got totally f'in lost IN La Defense so Nina had to take over. Thanks, Nina!
Loved the memorable road trip.
