Next Adventure: Paris

June 17: We are done with the car rally postings for a while. I will follow-up with more pictures of that adventure in the near future (there is a lot more to tell!),  but right now we are planning our trip to Paris. We leave Thursday and arrive Paris on Friday am. We have rented an apartment in the 7th arrondissement not too far from our last apartment on Quai Branly.

Our last apartment in Paris

We will be in Paris for a month. The first week will be consumedby a writer’s workshop during which time we will be working on our second novel, Night Watch. Like The Long Road to Paris, this one will be half suspense and half love story. The setting is a sailboat in the Bahamas. We are not sure if our heroes from The Long Road will turn up or not, seems they want to have at least a cameo appearance. They just won’t leave us alone.

The last three weeks we will play-and write. Hopefully we will visit some of the friends we made on the Trans-American Challenge this past month. That is a big part of taking on new adventures, the people you meet and the friendships you keep.

I don’t know what adventures we will write about  on this blog, but I am sure there will be lots to say and photos to post.

Stay tuned for the adventures in Paris,


About ejhowle23

Authors and adventurers, participated in the World Race 2011, an automobile rally from New York to Paris, crossing three continents and 14,000 land miles. Following much the same route as the setting for our debut novel, The Long Road to Paris. This blog describes our own adventures and challenges. And now you can follow our Bahamas sailing adventure that provides the setting for our second novel, Night Watch. Our rally, the African Safari Challenge, crossed five countries in South Africa in May 2014 and in 2015 we participated in the second Trans-American rally this time from Nova Scotia to San Francisco. Spring of 2016 we travelled 28 days around Australia with friends from previous rallies and in the fall participated in our most exhausting rally through Argentina, Chili and Peru- the Rally of the Incas. We were awarded the Against All Odds award. We're still not sure if this was for us or our car. Stewball never broke down and we hardly did. We will soon take on Iceland as a self-drive tour and in the fall of 2017 we will participate in the Odyssey Italia and then back to Africa for a do-over (almost) of the Africa Safari Challenge.
