found some time to continue with the roadtrip report for a little while ...DAY 2: BELGIUM - ENGLAND
an early wake-up call
chris is taking forever in the bathroom (like a lady), so i'm falling asleep again in the kitchen (sorry for the shaky picture, it isn't easy to take a good photo while sleeping
this one is for charlotte (and all the other bachelor fans out there): i had waffels in belgium (sorry, that's a total insider)
after a short night, the van is still waiting for us right behind the tunnel
one hour after getting up, we're ready to leave for england (note that the "onboard clock" is still set on summer time)
here's what's coming up today
on the road, chris immediately pulls his camera and starts shooting
tunnel s/s la manche - that's our exit
arrival at the french eurotunnel port
we are a little bit early (letter K still waiting for call) ...
... which gives us time to take some more photos (of each other taking photos)
inside, chris spots this wonderful teletubbies kiddie ride ...
... and because his son is the biggest teletubbies fan in the world, he can't resist to have a little chat with tinky-winky. unfortunately, i couldn't convince chris to actually ride this thing
the terminal offers some surprises for myself as well
the moment we are called, it's starting to rain
because this is chris' first time on the shuttle, i have to explain to him what he is not allowed to do
chris seems to be a quick learner and he immediately passes the demonstration procedure himself
after passing the exam, i'm calling the train captain to signal our OK for departure ...
... but my french is so bad that i just don't understand what he is trying to tell me!
time to take a short nap
chris uses the time on the shuttle to empty is mailbox
after a pleasant journey, we arrive on the island
chichester is where we have to go
who needs traffic signs when you have the lovebus
leading the way?
after receiving so much love, we're extremely hungry, so we're taking a break to grab some great burgers (i love the following series of photos)
enough love and food, let's head out again
the public footpath ...
... leading to rav's home
dominic (aka rav / ravage) almost manages to steal the adam's family pinball from right underneath our nose, but chris manages to snap a picture of him just in time!
over at the unit, rav has installed a brand-new parking sign for his guests
here we are, let the retrokade fun begin!!!to be continued ...
