Less than 24 hours after our car arrived, we packed up for our first road trip- Grafenwoehr. Graf what? you might ask- It is the closest military base about 4 hours away. A place to stock up on all our favorites from home!
We stopped about an hour away from Graf at a rest stop for the Toilette and Burger King. Crazy thing was? No lie we had to pay 70 cents each to use the bathroom! Paying for the bathroom was indeed a first, but it was also a very clean public restroom. The toilets even had an arm that came up and washed the seat with hot water after you flushed! Sorry, didn't have my camera in the bathroom for pics, but I will most certainly be bringing it next time!
Off to Burger King, I haven't had BK since I was in college, but it was pretty decent. The kids are loving the kids meals here because they get to pick out the toy. Good news at BK is they credited us 50 cents each for our Toilette ticket?! So, I suppose the paying for the bathroom isn't COMPLETELY outrageous.
We stocked our pantry for the next few months with many things-here is a sampling-
Cheddar Cheese - can't find in Berlin
Chocolate Chips - can't find in Berlin
Jimmy Dean Sausage - a must for sausage balls
Ziploc Bags - OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive
Charmin - I seriously think the TP here is in the cardboard family
Bush's Baked Beans
Cap'n Crunch Cereal
Stocked with some comfort foods of home, now if we can only get the rest of our comforts from home!
