CANTERBURY – DOVER / DUNKIRK – VEURNE, BELGIUM
Short drive down to Dover, followed by an hour wait for the ferry. Very strange leaving Britain for a considerable amount of time, but very exciting at the same time!
After the ferry, time for the open road and right-hand side driving, actually turned out to be fine, having a TomTom helped as it converts the speed to MPH and shows which way to go around the roundabouts.
We stopped just over the Belgium border in a small town called Veurne. Free parking at the marina with showers and toilets, perfect. Went for a walk around town and discovered a nice traditional square lined with bars and restaurants. Had dinner and a few drinks here, a nice way to start the trip.
