This time, we’ll be taking three days, and we will land in Dunkirk, France. We’ll spend a whole day in nearby coastal villages, and of course I’ll be doing another major supermarket run (the savings on food are also a great way to justify taking the trip!) The next day, we will drive into nearby Belgium and spend the day… not sure where! Brugge is less than an hour from where we’ll be, and I have a particular love for coastal towns, so we’ll likely do some of both that day. On the third day, we will have until noon before we need to be on our ferry again, so I am guessing we’ll be looking for an open market in a nearby town. And, it goes without saying that we will be doing a lot of eating. A whole LOT of that.
It is kind of mind boggling for me (still!) that this is an option. British people travel everywhere. Taking vacations is just part of life, and most Brits I meet have been everywhere in Europe! I love this about England, and I am particularly happy to be living on the Southeastern coast, where crossing the Channel is relatively easy and affordable. I am feeling super fortunate, and of course look forward to sharing all about it with you soon!
What do you love about where you live?
