I managed to fit in a quick day trip to Lens to see the Louvre outpost there and also connect with a doctoral student I met last summer. We met there, went to the Louvre, had lunch, and then walked to the top of one of "les terrils" and drank some champagne. It was a lovely day all around. I am fond of coal mining towns because of my own geneology. The town has preserved these large coal mountains as a reminder of the hard work and sacrifice of the coal miners.
After an 8 hour drive from North Wales to Dover (thanks to the M25 at Friday lunchtime) we boarded the ferry to Dunkirk where we stayed in a Camponille for the night!
An early start and a croissant (or 2) later we set off for Ypres. Our first stop was the Menin Gate, an impressive memorial to the soldiers of the British Empire who died during the battles in Ypres. There are 55,000 names engraved on the walls.

Day 1: My first day of the trip started in Dover and we got the ferry over to Calais, France. Our first destination was Lille in North France.

... at Middleburg in Holland, so we need to find some strong men to help get our dinghy on to our roof before then, as it is rather heavy and we do not want to put our backs out.
John went for a walk along the boats to talk to people to find out information (I know, it is tough as he finds it hard to talk to people!!!) About 1.5 hours later he returns after having been right into the city which is right on our doorstep and found ...

This hotel is a better option between a hostel and a hotel. The difference is that you have a room for yourself, but the rest of the commodities you'll have to share with the other guests.
If you book one room online (for 1,2 or 3 ppl) will cost you 24 euro/night/room!!!! If you go at the reception and take a room, then the price will be 39 euro for the same room.
Another mention here, if you're looking for a cheap place to sleep, then this is perfect, but only if you're traveling by car.
