Well we made it to Europe. It was a very interesting week leading up until this point for sure. For all of you Subaru owners, be advised, if a nail goes into the sidewall of one of your tires, you will have to replace all four. Apparently if you don't, the AWD system will fail.

Good budget accommodation that is close to the city center. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The double room with ensuite bath had everything that we needed and was very clean.
