0125 - Day 36 - Ypres to Paris - THE FINISH! 07/07/19

Day 36. Ypres to Place Vendome. We made it! What can I say? It certainly felt good (actually, great, fantastic, amazing!) to drive into Paris, even if the traffic was terrible. Thank you to everyone who has been following us - it has provided the extra impetus to complete this amazing adventure. We drove every kilometre of the rally, Gidget only stopped three times, all electrical and all solved, we drove some places that cars really aren’t meant to go, crossed 12 countries, covered 14,000 kilometres and shared it all with some wonderful people who have become close friends - thank you all!
Biggest thanks of course go to Giles, without whom none of this would have happened, and for his friendship, companionship and navigation throughout this amazing adventure. Thank you my friend.
Photos from various sources including my wonderful brother and sister, Marcus and Jessica, and Mark and Annette who came all the way to Paris to meet us - thank you!
