What a day. We started the day at the airport hotel in Paris. Despite what you may have heard from others, I would definitely NOT recommend it. Enough said about that. We began after breakfast by driving in the general direction of Colmar where we are staying – an 8 hour trip. You would think that after 26 hours on a plane we should have decided to not spend another 8 in another form of transport. But apparently this was better.
On a positive note, the house where we are staying is lovely. A typical French house, it has the wooden beams visible from the other wall (if that makes sense). It is pretty much impossible to park the car in the driveway though (I am so glad I still haven’t got my L’s), and the fridge is tiny, but apart from that it is a great place. The “hyper U” – a massive supermarket – is just 7,8 or 9 minutes away (depending on who you speak to) and the town is really quiet.
So that’s about it for our 2nd day, a long drive and a nice house.
And I’m sorry about the title – I couldn’t think of anything else.
