|Subject: RE: awful journeys|
The worst experience we had driving in Europe was being stuck on the autostrada in Italy for three hours while the polizia did their investigation and clean up of an accident. Traffic was backed up for many miles, and it took a VERY long time for the traffic to clear. Luckily, we were near the front of the line. We had fun talking to some of the people on a tour bus from Israel and sharing their sunflower seeds. Having a small child always opens up conversation! Always carry water and snacks in your car when travelling, and make sure you use a bathroom at each pit stop even if you don't really have to go. You never know how long it will be to the next bathroom!
