Breakfast at the hotel and while KL fed Ashley Nick and Cam went down the shops to check out a few things we saw the night before. We bought a couple of extra bags for the trip home and a lovely little pair of red shoes for Ashley for when she is a little older. Then we hit the road again. The plan was to pop into Liechtenstein but after getting lost we ended up in Switzerland so decided to head straight towards France. We hit the highways all the way to make time so we could spend the night close to Paris ready for the mad rush into the city. Nick and Ashley slept their way across Switzerland and so that we didn't have to change any money into Swiss Francs we decided to have lunch once we crossed the French border again. We stopped at a highway rest stop and had a baguette and Nick got himself a Magnum icecream. Nice to have French bread again! Then on the road to Troyes. We found a Formula 1 hotel and got two rooms for 60 Euros. Bargain! We got to our rooms and found that the toilets and showers were down the hall and you only got provided a hand towel which didn't even wrap around one of Cameron's thighs. No wonder it was only 30 Euro per room! Dinner at the diner next door was ok but nothing special and off to bed we went. Oh and the bloody pillow (one thin long soft turd looking thing) was the shared pillow. Ended up putting our jackets under it to help us sleep. Paris tmw.... Whoooppppeee!!!
