Flag of France  , Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur,
Friday, October 23, 2009

We've dropped off the car in Nice, a sign that the journey has come to an end. Soon we will depart this continent and head home. Delivering the car to the transport company, TT Transit, was with slight hesitation. Just handing the keys over to some French gal who's not too happy that the front license plate "disappeared" off of the car ("It "fell off" somewhere when we were driving over the Alps....")  We're hoping it makes it back to Colorado. 

The car will be trucked back to Germany, then placed on a boat to California, and eventually trucked to Schomp BMW to our friend Len Birnbaum. Arriving in 6 to 8 weeks.

BTW, John forgot to mention this in his euro car blog.. so, Dawn will brag a bit: the Europeans loved our blue BMW coupe. You just don't see this model very often over here, as a majority of the cars are usually black, grey or silver, and most often wagons.. or tiny little smart cars. We got a lot of thumbs up, the universal language for "nice ride"!

It's hard to just say "goodbye," we've become quite attached to and dependent on this automobile. So, we remember the travels and the adventures we've had: the crash-course (no pun intended) lessons on Italian, German, and French while cruising at top speeds, the eight nations we drove through, the very narrow streets, the head-ons with scooters we avoided, the pop hits on the radio in French.... Parting is such sweet sorrow, but we're happy to be heading home.

This has truly been a trip of a lifetime for us, a Bon Voyage. We will be returning with two big smiles, a thousand pictures, 1,783 miles on the speedometer and a million wonderful memories.

auf Wiedersehen, Arrivederci, Au revoir, See you back home!

Dawn & John
