Subway stores vary a lot in quality between themselves (much more than McDonalds or Burger King, but less than Pizza Hut).

Some take proper car of the ingredients and the sandwiches they make are tasty.

Others, not so much.

In France I prefer the Quick to McDonald's. McDonald's in Sweden is the best. Poland and the UK are the worst.

Did you know that in Sweden (McDonalds), they also serve Gluten-Free Buns.

Often there is no time for that. And typical home-made sandwich is usually not healthier than McDonalds or similar (of course if you don't exaggerate).

This is clearly false.
By the way, I bake my own bread.

I drove the Pont de Térénez today. Very impressive curved cable-stayed bridge, high above some kind of fjord near Crozon. I made a video and took numerous photos. I also walked the bridge and enjoyed the view.

In English it's "Brittany." (Just FYI.)
I assume we're going to see highway pictures?

I love Italian bread. McDonald's is healthier then a lot of people think.

Why go to Mc in Italy when for the same or even less you can eat a slice of pizza or a sandwich with local ham, salami or cheese?

Here, near my home I never visit fast food restaurants.
However, I pretty often do it during trips. It is, like its name suggests fast, and usually it is an important aspect for me and my friends.
And when I'm abroad, another important aspect: I know the certain foods well so I have no problem even in nations where I don't speak a word in the local language.
But I don't say I go to McDonald's every time I'm on tour. Last time in Bergamo I ate a pizza in Pizzeria San Vigilio. It was quite good and the panorama view made my visit there even nicer.

Possibly. He could film "Super size Ciabatta".

Is it possible today, in Europe, to get a sandwich with more than one filling? Like ham and cheese?

(I'm not saying it is at McDonalds. But European sandwiches can be pretty, um, limited. Although if you've got Subway now, that's better than nothing.)

My experiences are that the welthier are more developed nation you are, McDonald's are the uglier, dirtier, staff is the less polite.
E.g. in Kobenhavn the restaurant was very dirty, lot of garbage on the floor, assistant was slow and not polite; however in Skopje everything was shiny and very very clear, staff was very polite and quick.

When I worked in Bologna I used to go to a nice bakery shop, run by an Italian national soccer team female player, and I always had a sandwich with tomato, mozzarella, salad and prosciutto cotto or mortadella.
