Midnight Express: The Continental Dash, Part III

The concluding episode of our non-stop (well, almost...) drive from London to Geneva the way it used to be done. Black tie and vintage champagne set the tone, but not everything went according to plan...

Overly emboldened by making it across Europe, our minds now turn to the next road trip and we’re already getting carried away. New York to Los Angeles? London to the Arctic Circle? Paris to Moscow? All suggestions gratefully received, including “Stay at home”.
