Spring booze cruise

With Rebecca’s Ned running dangerously low, it was time to nip to Calais to replenish supplies. Although it was a gloriously sunny day, we had chosen to take the Channel Tunnel, the first time for a long time. Excellent check-in and travel times maximised time in France, where the local fare went down a treat. Interesting experience using Rebecca’s disabled card – it appeared we were the only ones on the 5.50 back to Blighty.

Easter visit to Calais

A quick Easter visit to Calais to top up the alcohol and cheesy comestibles for the big day. Arrived surprisingly early and caught an earlier ferry, one of the great benefits of Dover. Couldn’t quite work out the sums as we were given half a case of wine worth more than the ferry ticket for travelling with P&O, but who are we to argue. Amazing how quick the time goes in Cite Europe, so back to the ferry to catch an earlier sailing home.

Half term trip to Calais

We made it to Calais. Usual stops – Majestic Wines and Cite Europe, although no Tesco any more and many food shops disappeared from the centre of the Mall. Saved by Carrefour, although unusual to see birds flying around.
