We left Berlin at 10am with plenty of time to reach Düsseldorf before 5:30 (we had to meet our neighbor to receive keys to our apartment by 5:30, or find a hotel for the night). We had no idea traffic would be terrible, construction would be endless, and there would be multiple accidents- including an apple truck that spilled apples all over the highway :). Luckily we were on the autobahn, so we drove very fast, of course.
We stopped for gas along the way and quickly grabbed “lunch”. Crackers, cheese, sodas, and some chips. Can’t a girl get some fruit and vegetables?!?!?! Ugh.
