14 Point Turns

Having a car in Fontainebleau is essential. Many people (including me) live out of town and the transportation alternatives (taxis, public transportation, cycling) have some severe limitations. I opted for a long-term rental of a 5 seater so that I could enjoy a few road trips around the region and take my bike along. It's great on the road; spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for my bicycle. What I didn't bargain for was the challenge that my gigantic vehicle would create when my trips came to an end. Welcome to Europe, land of the impossible parking spaces.

Every time I have to park, I seem to need to do a 14 point turn. I can't help but have a flashback of Austin Powers (sorry, Erik):
