A coach trip to Europe via Ledger Holidays!

 

Cambridge Services M11, Cambridgeshire, England: An excellent motorway services with a smart set of facilities set in the rural landscape of Cambridgeshire. A circular centre enables you to quickly view all the available refreshments as a tourist you could possibly want for your holiday tour journey. A handy stop before engaging with the dreaded M25 !

 

 

The views from the Queen Elizabeth II bridge over the River Thames crossing from Essex to Kent as we head for Dover.

 

The White Cliffs of Dover close at hand according to the nav-sat.

 

The White Cliffs of Dover are an excellent location for cliff walks and picnic spots, though the spectacular location of old medieval church and Dover Castle are best appreciated from a cross-channel ferry on your way to your continental holiday! Despite the relatively short distance from Dover to Calais on the channel ferry , there is still plenty of time to eat and drink before embarking on your continental tour!

 

Dover Harbour with a berthed Norfolk Line cross-channel ferry.

Leaving Dover and heading for Calais.

 

 

 

Quite an impression on the sky-line.

 

A nice quiet drink since the coach driver is taking the strain!

 

What I had never realised existed - 'The white Cliffs of Calais' - a little geology lesson

Pidou Superstores outside Calais, en route to the cross-channel ferries, is a place where several UK travel companies do their luxury coach interchange on the return journey from their continental holidays. Many people (in cars) are seen leaving the Pidou Superstore with supermarket trolleys laden with good French wines! Fast food, of a distinctly non-French character are available and the local seagulls and semi-feral cats feed and sleep well out of the proceeds!
