We had breakfast and an early start. Could not keep track of what country I was in, so when I stopped for gas I had to show the attendant the currency and let him pick what was acceptable. then we had to figure the conversion rates. I think they were honest. Nobody would take Austrian schillings – they would only work in Austria.
So we went thru Germany, France, a town called Strasbourg (it did not seem to know if it was in Germany or France (maybe it was in both).
From there to Belgium. By this time it was obvious that we would have to drive all night and did.
