Romanian rest area - follow the TP trail

Most of our 13 hour drive home was on a 2 lane road like this. There are no restrooms along the way, just rest areas like this where you follow the trail of TP into the forest. Trash is everywhere. We tried to eat in the car as it was raining. Along the way Ryan tossed his cookies in the backseat, we passed 5 car wrecks, and stopped for 4 trian crossings. Fortunately it didn't rain the whole way and if you avoid the official rest areas you can visit some nice places (just no restrooms).

Romanian Staff Conference

I was impressed with how many of our CCC staff here speak English. All the staff members here are Romanian but only 10% needed headsets for translation when someone spoke in English. I needed translation often from Romanian and many people were able to help with that.

The Journey Home from Austria

Posted by Picasa

What a highlight to enjoy 4 days in beautiful Austria. It was only 5 hours away. It was so nice to use a friend's van instead of driving 2 cars. These built in child seats are pretty neat.
