I’ve lived in the South for over 13 years and Tuesday was the first time I’d ever done a day-trip to France (not including flying in and out in one day for work). It was fabby. M & D didn’t want to get up too early, so we caught the boat at 10:05 and by lunchtime we were enjoying moule + frites in a lovely little restaurant within the medieval town walls of a town in France. It was fabulous.
The ferry trip was smooth and uneventful – it even had decent coffee on board. And the jounrey through France was great. Very little traffic, no problems and diesel for D’s car was 17% cheaper than here.
We didn’t do any shopping, we walked, ate, walked some more and just meandered our way through the old cobbled streets of the old town. Fantastic.
I’ll be doing this again – soon hopefully. But, I’ll take the earlier boat…
