Day 35, Paris!

Written on: Tuesday July 3rd, 2007

A journal entry from: Peking to Paris

Paris at last.  The best moment for me was seeing my wife waiting at the finish line in Place Vendome.  We missed seeing you there mom, get better soon.  It was also great to see Sheridan, Ashley and Joe, they were in Paris for the big finish before heading off to Zermatt. MaryAnn Nobile and family also greeted me at the finish. I was overwhelmed to see so many familiar faces after six weeks with the rally.

Andrew was welcomed by his girlfriend and father, they will all drive the Esskovich back to Portsmouth England.
There was a big dinner celebration with video and pictures of the journey, even more champagne and many awards.
The Esskovich, Andrew and I managed to hang onto the bronze medal and 13th place out of 15 in the Pioneer division.  Not to bad considering what we have been through.
Thanks for tuning in. Lisa and I have some catching up to do, so this will be the last update for a bit.
