Round Rock Donuts, Texas
                    Coffee stops on car trips, whether they are one hour or 10 hours’ long, are indispensable for every Italian person on the road. I can’t think of one travelling experience without stopping at an Autogrill on the road for coffee and croissants. Ever. This trip is …
