During the half-dozen years I lived in Germany, I visited Paris often. It’s more convenient to fly now, but I’ll never forget the road trips. Less than seven hours from Bavaria at 25 (that’s 25 years old).
I started driving from Germany to Paris during the late 1960s. My route was mostly tree-lined roads like this one.
The scenery didn’t vary much, mostly farmers’ fields …
and wonderful, welcoming fields of brilliant, giant sunflowers.
