    Well folks... (@hard top , not included)

    Thank you for a great trip. The planning that goes into these is hard sometimes and to see peoples smiles actually makes it worth while.

    Thanks must go to @DutchScorpion Roger & his partner, also to all the lovely Dutch Zeds who make us feel so welcome. I hope the day at SPA was as good for you as it was for the rest of us. Maybe next year I can push the pace car a little faster.

    Note for Mike, The forum post was for getting people together, the actual work organising this was via email and actually Facebook too. SO WIND YOUR BLOODY NECK IN.... ( Thats all I am going to say on that subject, I think a few have said enough above )

    The photos that I have seen are amazing as expected and I have put together a video of a few of mine. If I was to post them all I think the forum would grind to a halt. Maybe next year someone else might like to organise the big events so I can actually go tot the back and enjoy the trip more rather than worry about the next place we are stopping... Joking.....

    OK, the video. enjoy...

    I really like how you did that video Paul, and as I've said before thanks to you all for sharing. Enjoyed watching this and seeing all the photo's too.

    Tony.

    @t-tony Takes a bit of practice using Apples iMovie and then adding music. You then stretch the time of the photos to the length of the music and push compile... lol... its that simple. You do though need a powerful processor to do the movie is a decent time. All good fun.

    Ok folks. This is a large file and we are testing panoramic photos. Let's hope it works. Thanks to @GazHyde

    Edit by Gaz: They are uncompressed so will take a while to load and are around 6000 pixels wide, click on them to see them in high detail!

    This was my first Euro cruise, and it exceeded all expectations. The roads and the scenery were fantastic, but what made it special for me was the group of people I shared my adventure with. The memories they helped to create will live with me always.
    I would like to add my thanks to @pgunter for organising everything. Thanks must also go to @DutchScorpion for organising the Dutch crew , who made a huge effort to welcome us. Thanks to the daily group leaders for showing us some tremendous routes.
    I would just like to add a few pictures of my own.

    @PHILIP BAXTER glad you enjoyed yourself. That's what makes organising events worth while. Not a dry eye in the house most nights when we were away. The banter and jokes were brilliant, such good fun.

    Hope to see you on a similar event in 2018.
