Caen - Beauvais

View Portugal 2013 & Norge 2013 on sonofzso's travel map.

9 AM - Waky waky - coffe, brioche and ready to leave!


10 AM - On the road
one and a half hour and the first car stops - "You're trying at the bad place..I know better" - of course you do(n't)
11.45 AM - Boom - "Yeah thanks to let us on the middle of the highway"
12 AM - Woman and her mother stop - after taking us on a sightseeing tour (and taking her Mom home) we have the choice between péage (toll on the highway) or the trunk road... Péage of course - people can stop, but they still continue on the highway
12.05 AM - We have our savior of the day - girl postpones her meeting to get us to a good spot
around 2 PM - about 60 kms from Beauvais - we've got severaly cars, the last one ridiculous: mother and son (driving) - mother thinks we're either asleep or deaf - anyway - doesn't stops scolding his son picking us up - " You know they could be killers, today you never know...blablabla"
long story short, finally he drops us out near the cathedral and we get away with a compliment...on my backpack... :D

4 PM - Beauvais - town center - it's freezing
we go into a subway hungry and worn out - taking at least 10 minutes to choose our sandwiches (yeah well 2nd time in subway) - the guy seems nice, asks us about our trip, and guesses that we're couchsurfers.
4.30 PM - we admit that we have no one for the night and to our biggest surprise he offers us his place, so we hang out in the city until he finishes work
6 PM - nice appartment, dinner, music, cool guy, cute kitty - too bad Clotilde has an allergy
around midnight and after a bottle of wine and cider we go to sleep
