Sunday morning. I am up at 4.30am. Frank, who's been awake the best part of the night gets up a few hours later. We are not quite cranky, but after another bad night we're not in the best of moods either. After breakfast Frank has had enough and decides to swap the mattresses of the two beds to see if it will make any difference. We'll let you know tomorrow. ;-)
Breakfast was more like brunch, but tasted soooo good. Fresh croissants. Can't wish for anything better... Ah well, bagels with fresh cream cheese come to mind, but we're in France now. Better forget our American adventure.
Then it is time to try out the car and go for a little drive. Shouldn't be too hard, after we've been driving on the right side of the road for 6 weeks in the States. René's GPS is a bit difficult to use, so we're happy we've brought our own. At first we have problems setting the home location, because the GPS can't find the address. However, there's always more than one way to skin a cat and we just set the current location as home address, et voila! It works.
