Brittany Day 1

So we were up at the crack of dawn, we took Ruby for a walk around the private gardens at the side of our B&B. Then we went down to breakfast. We left at 8.30 to get to the Eurotunnel port in good time. We arrived, followed the signs, booked in went through passport control. Then we parked in the waiting area and took Ruby for another walk in the exercise area until we were called.

We watched the board we were L, but we were told once J was called we were to proceed to board the train. Very soon we were off.

Its a long drive from the waiting area to the train, we had never done this before so it was nerve wracking and exciting.

Where is that train, how far can it be.

There it is, oh! my goodness it is big.

In we go, breath in.

Up we go.

The view in front.

Then it is time to leave.

Here we are in France and it’s another long drive. We are arrived.

Jump six hours three stops, lunch and a long walk for Ruby, half an hour getting lost we finally arrived at our Gite.

Long walk for Ruby, glass of wine dinner and then relax.

    Isn’t that the tunnel that goes UNDER THE WATER to France? Yikes. I get claustrophobic just looking at the photos. I can’t imagine actually being in a car doing that.

      We drive on to the train, then we sit in the car and the train takes us through the tunnel only 30mins. The picture that looks like a tunnel is the interior of the train. Best way to travel with a dog as we stay with her all the time. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

        That’s worth knowing as Maggie has her passport, but we’ve been wary of taking her abroad because we didn’t want to leave her in the car by herself. Your gite looks heavenly.

        The train ride was quick, and smooth definitely recommend it . The Gite was lovely apart from a spiral staircase and boiling hot water all the time. It was lovely, well equipped and just where we wanted it , in the middle of nowhere ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

    I would hate being in the belly of the train like that. It’s bad enough in the passenger train part. You need nerves of steel ๐Ÿ™‚

    Amazing! I’ve always wondered what that long tunnel experience would be there. I’m claustrophobic…. probably wouldn’t be able to handle it. Enjoyed your pictures though! Glad you had a good time. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’–
