I didn't take any photos in France for a number of reasons. First I was determined to get to Dunkirk in time and, to be fair, there really isn't much to see in this part of France. Not enough to schedule a stop, anyway. There is however some great dashcam footage.

As a side note: Holland was the friendliest country, Germany had the best roads (duh) and Luxembourg was the prettiest city. I've had zero encounters with police/customs on the road except... in Dover on my way back, UK customs insisted to check my car. They also had a hard time believing that someone would just go on a long drive like that without an actual destination. Little do they know: it's not about the destination, it's about the journey.
And that's it folks for this trip. You can find all 5 parts of this trip and others under the Road Trip tab in the menu.
