Where I stayed
Little Switzerland Caravan Park
We stopped to check out the White Cliffs of Dover prior to our crossing to Calais (France). This is what Ariel had to say. I went for a walk (or climb) up one of the cliffs and saw the view of a life time. It was gorgeous, like a post card in front of your eyes
Little Switzerland was the name of the van park we stayed at. The owners had purchased the property from the council at an auction - 10 years prior. At the time it had one building that had been part of an American army base. They thought that was what they would be purchasing. As it turned out they got 16 acres was well. They cleaned up the building and cleared the land in front of it. They then had exceptional views of the cliffs and so turned the building into a coffee shop and the, bonus, land into a van park.
The choice of crossing the English Channel to France was a) a ferry or b) through the tunnel. We choose b) the tunnel option. The locals thought it comical that we had expected to drive through the tunnel. The publican hollered out to the patrons, "Hey this bloke reckons he's driving through the tunnel." Not so. It’s a train - Ooh! We thus proceeded onto the train, sat for 35 minutes in our dear Bertha and then motored off the train at the other end.
And a Wobble, Wobble, Wobbled on into France.
