Wink Day 09 - Last day/stretch of driving before arriving to Paris: "final" destination

On the 9th day of our ED trip, we re-visited a couple of places that were faintly part of my childhood, so i wanted come back and see for myself how they really are.

From N to P


As i zoom out the map to give you some perspective...
From Munich.... all the way to our planned route on our 9th day:


So this is what you are going to see in the next 10 posts:
(i will try to point you which pictures where taken along the N-O-P route above...)

i am seeing this car a lot more than expected, not bad looking at all, tempted to say very good look almost...
i wonder why BMW hasn't yet jumped on the bandwagon, but i guess the i3 and i5, and i8 will be those to fight the B-Class:

D9-062


D9-063

it's already rare to see an american muscle car on European roads, but a Shelby tops it:

D9-064

looks like this is a Parisian with car culture:

Sorry the color is off, due to an incorrect white balance setting
D9-065

Making our way to the next waypoint:

D9-066

and as usual, rain is trying to catch up with the 335i
