55 mph? What the heck is that?

OK, so we made it safely back to Detroit on a NW/KLM code share flight from Amsterdam that was suprisingly smooth.

A little hassle with the rental car situation, but whatever, we got over it. The only let-down so far: 55 mph!

I hate to sound like one of those Autobahn snobs (because hey — I don’t even own a car!), but criminy. Felt like we were crawling.

    I am so glad to see that you’re back and safely! YESSS……………………

    And yes… Autobahn snobs. If you don’t watch it, I’ll subject you to an over and over loop of Autobahn by Kraftwerk.

    Presents and fun times on Thursday! Woot!

    Welcome home – I’ll be there Friday night. Sorry we won’t be able to catch up…

    I TOTALLY know what you mean! ( I was dying with a Mercedes rental and stuck at 55!! Crazy Americans :-) However, Matthias and I have both noticed how much more relaxing the freeway driving is compared to the Autobahn (unless there is traffic). Everyone just kind of cruises along and there are no super-speeders to worry about in the rear view mirror.
