Tim's Travelling Adventures

Well, this started out as a way that my wife could follow my lone progress in my little sports car from Birmingham UK to Orkney.

Been there, done that 2 day there, 13hour return trip.

So now follow me: an Englishman representing Americans and based in a French office near Paris. With an appartment in Versailles and trips back to the UK anything can happen and, frankly, I've no idea where this will lead!

Little Victory

(viewed 627 times)
Bookmark and Share
When you live in a foreign language country there are lots of little
challenges: Renting a flat, getting a phone, getting the internet....., and
for me ordering a pizza without cheese. Not a big fan of melted cheese, me,
and anyway it is healthier without. I know I'm not normal but then who is?
So success last week was to negotiate on the phone with Dominos Versailles
to deliver just what I wanted. "Yes I did say without cheese. Yes, you can
do it, it is possible. Yes, I will speak to the manager".

Yay for you - that's a huge victory!

I can't eat cheese and while spending two months in Italy was teased by my colleagues about how good I was at ordering stuff without it. Interestingly, the Italians aren't bothered by the concept of pizza without cheese - it's pizza if it has tomato sauce on it. The rest of the world? Not so easy.

Thanks Geodyne, made it taste better too. Only downside to no cheese Pizzas is that everything falls off. Still, well worth the effort.

Funnily enough, I finally braved the phonecall to Pizza Hut en Francais too the other night. I did rather well, even if I do say so myself ;) It arrived, at the right address, and the right door, and was the right order.
