Day 35 Lausanne (Switzerland) to Reims (France) 485kms

We travelled the 520 Km from Lausanne, Switzerland to Reims in France without going on any motorways.  Once out of Switzerland traffic thinned and it was a very nice drive. 

At the first passage control in France we met up Jacques Darocha, who we missed catching up with on the Sydney to London Rally two years ago.  He drove nearly 100km from his home to the control, and we had time for coffee and a brief chat before pressing on.

 

 

 

The route took us through the Champagne region and at one of the passage controls we were treated to champagne and cake.  Lovely.

We now have just 180km to go to Paris, and it's looking good for a good result.

Next: the final leg into the Place Vendome and a champagne welcome
