    Day 15 Orpington

    July 14, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We decided to get ourselves brunch from a supermarket rather than stay for breakfast, so that we could have a last picnic and buy some French wine. Before we left I had to go for a last swim in the glorious morning sunshine. In the carpark was a Belgian car with the numberplate NO:C:O2 and it was filling up with Electricity ( supplied in the hotel car park. We then off in the direction of Calais looking out for supermarkets. We found a huge Leclerc and headed off to find food then looked for the wine only to find a notice saying that alcohol would not be on sale again until Monday morning! We could only assume that this was because today is Bastille Day. We carried on and found a lovely place to picnic and then back to the Eurotunnel, and then back to Orpington.Read more

    Den6 Cesta do Frankfurtu II.

    May 17, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Tak vazeni, sme vo Folkerstone. Cesta prebiehala v pohodicke, jazdu po opacnej strane aj po vsadepritomnych kruhovych objazdoch uz mame v krvi. Postupne sme sice museli zvysovat nasu priemernu rychlost, ale check-in na Eurotunnel sme urobili o 14:17 ;-) !!! Cize s 3 minutovou rezervou. Este sme stihli rychle wecko a uz sme utekali na pasovu kontrolu a nalodenie na vlak, lebo odchod sme mali 14:50. Za pasovou kontrolou nas vsak cakal oznam, ze pre technicke problemy sa nepremavalo a aktualne meskanie je 60 minut!!! V hlave sa mi hned rozbehli vsetky prepocty zahrnajuce casovu rezervu, potencial nemeckej nocnej dialnice, nevyhnutne tankovanie a potrebu dorazit do hotela do 23:00 (uz nasho casu, nie UK) ... pociatocne nadsenie zo stihnutia check-in sa menilo spat na jemnu nervozitu ako sme ju uz poznali z Bostonu. Na fotke vidno ako stojime a cakame aj s ostatnymi na nalodovanie. Nakoniec sa meskanie natiahlo, do vlaku nas zacali ukladat az o hodinu a vyrazali sme o 16:13 ... cize meskanie 1 hodina 23 minut!!! Nalodenie do vlaku sme uz zvladli ako stari podmorski eurotunelovi harcovnici, a tentokrat sme dokonca chytili miesto na poschodi :-) Tak sa ozveme opat az z kontinentu.Read more

    Eurotunnel Folkestone

    October 24, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Finally! Only 3 weeks behind schedule due to the over run of the repairs to the motorhome. Picked her up yesterday afternoon and spent the night back at Dower House. Thanks to Tom and family for an excellent roast dinner and good company.Read more
