Vacation Glitch Solutions

David and I had a flat tire in the medieval Breton city of Dinan, France.

David and I will never forget the flat tire that marred an otherwise perfect trip to the Brittany area of France.  Luckily, our wonderful hosts, from whom we had rented a hundred-year-old granite three story house, helped us locate and deal with a tire company.  But if you don't happen to have a helpful landlady, what should you do if disaster strikes?
