I just looked up St Ingbert. That's really funny, because I've been there too, twice.

Actually, it's quite sad, when la cuisine francaise is only a few km away.

I think i can beat that. I had dinner on the same McD's somewhere between Berlin and Poland 3 times in a week (twice the same day)

1st day
On the way to Poland (lunch)
On the way home from Poland (dinner)

around a week later
On the way home from Poland (lunch)

I also mis-calculated the time it would take to cross the Ardennes from Liège to Reims. I thought it could be done in two hours (the entire route is 2x2) but it took somewhat more time, it was already around 2.30 pm when I arrived in Reims. So I arrived around 7 pm in the Pfälzerwald, where I found a nice campsite and I spent the night there.

It was cold, I had to scrape my car-windows this morning. Funnily enough, I had dinner at the exact same McDonalds I used exactly a year ago (Sankt Ingbert, not far from Saarbrücken).
nice

and how many kilometers it was?

In Slovakia are common just these brown and white signs.

like austrian one



PS: that is not like a normal sign on a road. Normal signs are darker.

Chris, nice license plate.

It have to be very cold weather to freezing. Maybe not so nice to sleeping in the tent. Does it?

Damn poles and their split-up speed signs

But seriously, is there a great story behind those signs??

Hm, I wonder if the speed limit is 100 km/h where are they going to place the middle 0. But generally I like the idea.

There would be several ways to put middle '0' somewhere, but I find them all funny.
