Moving day! We reserved a station wagon at Hertz but were upgraded to a small truck for the same price. This was great because I suddenly realized how much stuff we still had; anything smaller than a truck would have been useless.
During our six-hour trip south to Ulm, Tony was constantly complaining because I refused to take side trips up some mountain roads to see castles and old walled cities. For crying out loud, we were in a truck! Medieval towns were soon forgotten when my family welcomed us with a huge barbecue.
