Today we said goodbye to Werry (yes that's Gerry with a W) our bus driver for a couple of days as by law he has to have 45hrs away from the bus and met Bertram our new driver for a couple of days. We had a day in Canterbury......home to Kent County Cricket and the famous Canterbury Cathedral where Archbishop Thomas Becket was beheaded in 1170 by four knights responding to the urgings of King Henry ll.

... Not cool. There were witnesses, including some hot French chick. Walked all the way into Calais. Found hotel I was looking for and it was closed. Must be Sunday! Everyone's not open 24/7 like the USA. Found a fairly inexpensive hotel to stay at this evening. Had a bite to eat, onion soup and market salad, down at Cafe de Paris.

We set off from greenwich at 7.30 and where at Dover in 90 minutes, very quick, the sun was shining as we left port, the journey was smooth, the it was a 4 hour journey to Paris, we were told the rules on the trip, no gum, no hot food, only cold snacks and drinks, oslo anyone who is late gets to wear the late hat, looks like an old football hat.Also we were told not to call the bus a bus but rather a coach, the price for indiscretion was to buy ...
