Read on the blog of a man who is running from Amsterdam to Athens this summer. Hat tip to the guy and his courage !
If you want to follow this guy's adventures, see http://ryanrunseurope.blogspot.com/.
"I happened to arrive on a day when they were having a barbecue with the extended family, and spent the evening eating some awesome food and discussing the differences between American and French culture with the kids." The guy wrote "foot" but the number of typos on my blog is awesome, so I shall not make fun of that one.
But discussing culture with the kids ? That must have been a short talk ...
