    Under the sea

    December 26, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    We decided to switch up our travel and train back to London from Paris. This meant going through the Chunnel! The engineering feat that links the UK to mainland Europe via a tunnel under the sea. The whole thing is mind boggling.

    Train trail is better than flying except for packing your luggage onto the car. It is better for the snacks you can bring. We had a lot of left over cheese from yesterday that we took on the train with us and had a train picnic! Complete with Bordeaux wine.

    Eurotunnel Calais

    February 24, 2020 in France ⋅ 🌬 10 °C

    The plan was for a nice relaxed couple of hours drive from Ry Village to here. Didn't exactly turn out as planed. We left with more than enough time to spare which was just as well. As it got dark the rain started to fall and the wind picked up. As we weren't using tolls we were driving along the unlit D roads with virtually no visabilaty, add to that the patches of thick fog that kept popping up and all in all it was a bit of a pain journey. Jaynes heart rate peaked at about 125bpm but was above 110bpm for most of the drive.
    After finally reaching Calais, check in was smooth and hassle free, we even got on to an earlier train so were back in the UK by 10pm.
