Do you remember the post about the trip Mr A and I had booked to go to France for the day in December with our friends John and Yasmin?
The Euro Tunnel was at a complete standstill that day, as was the motorway!!!
Well, we finally went on Saturday - Yay!!
We left home around 08:15
Our train was booked for 12:00
But we were lucky enough to get there in time for an earlier train!!!
When we arrived in Calais we went to check out some hotels near to the terminal as Mr Angel and John are off on a little jaunt in June with some friends on their Lambretta and Vespa scooters!!!
From there we went to Cite Europe to buy wine and to look round the gorgeous shops there!!
Of course we had to take a break for lunch!!!
Then we were off to do some more shopping!!
We went here...
Then we went here
Yes more wine - none of it was for me!!! Yasmin does not belong to AA contrary to what you might think after seeing the photographs!!!! She stocks up!!!
We stopped off for a lovely french coffee!!
Before heading back to the Eurotunnel terminal and home!
We didn't have time for dinner in France too, so we went out for a late meal when we got home!!
We had a fantastic day - but we always do with John and Yasmin!!!
Thank you Yasmin for organising this great day out!!
Thank you Mr A for driving!!!
