Just being confused about the French language

Today we just wanted to drive through France and enjoy some more different impressions but even ´just driving´ wasn´t that easy because of the unfamiliar looking city names.
The French language was absolutely challenging although I learnt it at school but recognizing all the different, often amazingly long names was both a bit confusing and good fun. Our eyes stuck on the road signs like a stamp on an envelope, that's for sure!
An extra round in many of the countless and often creatively decorated roundabouts became a habit but on the other hand it was a nice possibility of getting to know a couple of neat places.
Our more than 420km long route guided us through Marc du Seine, Dijon and Troyes. In the end we arrived somewhere in the beautiful Champagne, where we also found an idyllic place for the night.
We stayed right beside a field, where we could watch a whole rabbit family hopping around the mobile home. How neat! We didn´t dare to move or blink or breathe until the curious little fellows had finished their dinner in the field.

Hmmm, that quiet and relaxing evening seemed to be a bit unreal. We definitely weren´t used to so much peaceful and stressless time anymore ;-)

Isn't it funny how a calm evening can be so notable? ... it sounds so nice! Sylvia
