Having driven nine hours today, to south east France, I can confirm an observation of earlier trips – viz. that the nationalistic French buy few cars of foreign manufacture. Which is why I don't buy anything French. If enough of us do this, they'll soon realise how short-sighted their attitude is. What goes round, comes round. As they say.
The other thing I confirmed is that, after you've gone off the autopista for a break or whatever, it's not wise to rejoin it in the wrong direction. Blood pressure is the first thing to go.
And that, dear reader is all I have to over tonight.
