We Make it Home!

Before Leaving the Badger Pub.
And after we've done the 8 cities.


England

After only 6 days we make it back to Blighty, lovely warm weather throughout Europe and freezing when we hit the UK. So much so Nathan abandons Dave for the warmth of the Van and Ian relaxes on the back of Dave. If only Ian's attention deficit disorder could be cured as after the first mile he was bored.


Ian celebrating the final leg of our journey.
Ahh the wind in my face!
At least Ian can rehydrate while riding on the back of this beast!
Dave, Ian and Clive.


Channel Tunnel
Owing to BIG Dave's Motion sickness we wimp out and use the Chunnel. This is the first experience for Nathan, Ian and Dave who are all very impressed with the efficiency of this service. If only we had had more time to hit the duty free!!


Dave, Nathan and Ian.

Our last night

Paris

After a long hard push we hit our final objective city number 8, Paris. This was only 5 and a half days after leaving Eccleshall on Sunday lunchtime! Perhaps next time we could 10 cities in 8 days!!
