I just returned from a week in Normandy (and a week in Holland) and have a lot of stories to tell as well as photos to use/share. In France, my husband and I were part of a group of ten coming from Georgia, Illinois, Maryland and Connecticut. On an earlier trip together, we had rented a Peugeot Trafic which is a tank-like oversized car that holds up to eight pretty comfortably. With two Trafics between us, we could travel luxuriously.
My husband and our travel coordinator were the designated drivers - there were no others begging to do this job! The vehicles performed admirably although there were size challenges in driving narrow country roads as well as parking. The size of many roads particularly in the centers of older towns and cities were definitely not designed for this size car - in fact, they were really not designed for cars at all. Parking spots as well as underground structures were not always accessible. Our drivers were our heroes!
|Tim was fond of saying that he was using JPS - Jack Positing System. They tag-teamed throughout the area.|
After this week, we took one of the Trafics to Holland - a much longer total distance and more challenging driving and parking to come!
