Sunday morning 9:45 Raststätte Bedburger Land. After a lousy night with hardly any sleep I woke up at 6:50, ten minutes before the alarm I had set. I had not slept much due to a sore throat which had started the day before but I got up and followed my morning routine of eating shaving and showering. I had packed most things on Saturday already so it was just a matter of finishing off and saying goodbye to my dad and my dog Sophie before I could leave.
Officially my vacation had started, but I was not feeling 100%, so I took my time. After all it is vacation. But I did not yet have the vacation feeling, not at all.
My dad helped me to carry a few last things to the car when I was as rolling my suitcase. Caring as he was he had packed a few things for me to use while driving. Some water, chocolate milk cookies. You know little nice to haves just in case.
A few minutes after 8:00 I drove off, on my vacation to Austria. My first address in Austria was just over 920 km, so I had decided to make a stop in between. I did not want to spend the whole day in the car driving and arriving tired, or even more tired after not having slept well last night.
I will stop in Nürtingen, a small place 575 km from Breda.
