Why? Because I’m going to ride my bicycle everywhere for the next three weeks. Because my car is in France.
Ok.. I can tell this is going to need a bit more explanation.
I had a job interview in Strasbourg, so I drove there. And since I’m taking care of the farm I had to drive back the same day. Which was fine, I love driving and the countryside of southern Germany is absolutely breathtaking and you can drive as fast as you want. Yay!
Only on my way back after a really fun and interesting interview my car decided it would take up smoking. I tried to convince it to give up the habit, but apparently something was utterly and completely broken. So I had to wait for the French AAA (because they won’t allow the Dutch anwb on their highways) and ended up staying in a hotel in Sarreguemines (I have, so far not found anyone who can pronounce this).
My car will be sent home in about three weeks and I myself was rescued by a knight in shining Volvo who drove to the unpronounceable place in the middle of the night.
