Yes, We Made It!!

They certainly dragged it out on the last day, making us weave through many small French villages. Gorgeous countryside but I have to admit that we only wanted to get there! Arrived about 1.30pm.

Finally drove over the finish line – over 14000kms later. I had a huge sense of relief and was rather dazed by it all. People everywhere – but couldn’t find the girls or Carro, Tom and Tasman tell after we’d gone over the line. Wonderful to see them! Then Sue Sbrenna, from Italy turned up and Maddy Kofoed, who was living with a French family in Lyon turned up….so was fantastic! A bottle of wine with a late lunch, then the ball and lots of farewells, as with many of these people we may never see again. Lots of different emotions from relief to sadness…….a great sense of achievement and an overwhelming feeling of exhaustion.

A little escargot…!

  4. Hey Craig and Nicky, it’s a wet Sunday in Sydney and you’re probably home by now. Well done on a rare and fantastic adventure – knew that piston would come in handy. Gaye hopes Nicky got her retail therapy and I hope you haven’t forgotten how to surf – 2′ and mushy at Sth Steyne today. Lovely pictures of the girls in Paris – yeah you two scrubbed up pretty well after your ordeal aswell!
    Best wishes, see you soon
