Paykan Overload#53

Photo by me taken in central Tehran.


Pictures sent to me by my friend Seth, he and his family went for a road trip vacation, in his famous Seth Wagon, through France last August:

Seth: "In August we went to France on our holidays again, this time into the East of the country near Strasbourg and the German border. Lots of hilly/mountainous country and the car coped really well, even towing the trailer tent over a 949m high pass on the way home. By the time we got back to London we’d done a bit over 1400 miles in the two weeks we were away."
