Midnight Express: The Continental Dash, Part II

Once upon a time, many years ago, in an age before cramped budget airlines or bumper-to-bumper traffic on congested freeways, there was an era when Continental travel promised glamour, adventure even...Of course, practicality usually comes at their expense, but occasionally it’s good to put aside such considerations and take a step back in time.

It's still dark and our two vintage sports cars are spearing through the night, engines humming and ancient headlights showing the way. Robert Coucher and I are tired, hungry and still wearing black tie from the awards dinner the previous evening. France here we come!
