Troyes – Nearly there!!

One more day and only 200kms to go!! We still haven’t been on the truck of shame (TOSA’S) and it looks like we might just make it. Car still on 5 cylinders, has a major radiator leak and also still has the carborator squirting fuel….but all in all I think we will sneek over that finish line.

Lovely drive today through the French countryside. Then a quick time trial around a racing track, which was a blast even if we might have been the slowest car. Before back on the motorway to reach Troye (450kms). Yippeee, can’t believe we are almost there…must go as glass of wine (or 2) beckons.

  3. Waiting with bated breath confirmation of your arrival in Paris – you’ve done brilliantly to nurse the old Dodge along on less than its full complement of cylinders.

    You richly deserve your Jeroboam of Dom Perignon (White Gold edition) to slake your thirst after the rigours of 37 days on the road …

  4. Waiting with bated breath to hear confirmation of your arrival in Paris. You’ve done brilliantly (despite having fewer than your full complement of cylinders) and will no doubt be slaking your thirst in the appropriate manner. After the rigours of the road, I’d recommend a Jeroboam of Dom Perignon – White Gold should do nicely.
