Our last rest day of the rally. The next scheduled rest day is Cartagena
, and that’s a day of rest not a rest day, as we’ll all be considering our flights home then! But now it’s time to consider the journey home of our trusty vehicles. Woe betide anyone who missed the notary, we were warned… the penalty for missing her, or providing incomplete documentation, is a 5 day stay in Cartagena. Hmmm, I’ve seen Trip Adviser photos of our hotel and frankly, it’s tempting! But no, we are all too busy and have actual lives to return to – a weird thought after so long away. Our notary arrived mid morning, so one by one the car owners popped up to see her, she checked we were who we said we were and stamped our documents to prove it. This means that our vehicles can be returned home.
Paperwork sorted it was no time at all until mid afternoon when those who wanted to, were ferried over to meet with a local car collector and view his private collection. Hans Ulrich Wartenweiler (of Volvo Amazon fame), had kindly arranged this very pleasurable excursion, and we owe him a huge Thank You in appreciation.
