After an overnight transfer up France in the coach we arrive at Calais at 11am in the morning for the ferry to Dover, hopefully arriving home 24 hours after leaving Luchon in Harrogate at 18:30
Silently our coach glides through France whilst not a sound from it's inhabitants - all the guys fast asleep !!
It's now 6.30am and we have been in the coach for 13 hours and most people are still asleep, being north of Paris Mark has made excellent time and we are ahead of schedule
Brrr the outside temperature which has been constant at over 25 degrees is now showing a chilly 18 !!!!
Happy Birthday Duncan, shame the cricket was cancelled, anyway you wouldn't have enjoyed the trip - it's being really boring !!!! (not)
Due to speedy Mark we have caught the 9am ferry not 11am, just loading now - see you in the UK ! ( and it's cold and chucking it down ! - welcome back to the UK Tewit !)
LANDED AT DOVER 10.03 UK time
Expect us home 2 hours early...
And thats about it, Robin Stride signing off, but just before I go, the final entry...
Arrived back at Harrogate to waves and cheers from the parents all welcoming us all back... with lots of stories to be told and memories but just as we were going home think of poor Dawn who could not start her car, despite us trying to bump start (see pictures)
I hope the AA came out swiftly....
