A Stop I Wish We Could Make Far More Often…

Our trip home from Maastricht could only start once we had done some cleaning in the house and packed up our things.

I did most of the packing so that they could also squeeze in one last swim in the pool, because as many parents will know, you can pack far more efficiently when there are no distractions or kids getting under your feet.

I had almost all of the packing done and bags put by the front door for Himself to load into the car by the time they got back and then all that needed to be done was the cleanup of the house.

We decided to leave as late as possible in order to fit in the swim, so it was already close to lunch time by the time we hit the road.

Needless to say, after an hour and a half in the car, tummies were rumbling so we pulled into a motorway restaurant for what we first thought might be  snack but soon decided should be a really decent lunch. The decision turned out to be inspired, the food was fabulous! Everyone love their food and when the side salads were inspired. Even the kids were stunned and awed when their dishes were served with toys as well as pencils and coloring papers. Add to this that the staff were mega friendly, we were very very impressed! The only downside to this restaurant was that it was too far from home to come here regularly!

The wall that lines the road to the truck stop, at the back of the car park has signs that one of the trucks that use this came off a bit worse for wear, as did the wall…
