journey to france




Our trip to France did not turn out as magical as I had imagined.



We started our day with a full english breakfast at our hotel in nottingham



We took many trains to get to Dover. Let me list them:


Train 1 To Nottingham to St Pancras Intl Railway
Train 2 to Brighton
Train 2 Transfer from London Bridge to Ashford

Train 4 Ashford to Deal Sandwich

Train 5 Dover Priory Shuttle to the P&O Ferry



It was an hour and a half ferry ride from Dover, England to Calais France.


One we arrive in Calais we are told that the last train left at 7:40p (it is 9:30now). Our only option is to stay overnight in Calais. We have a check in today in Paris.



We walk a few miles and decide to stay at the Victoria Hotel. We climb three flights of stairs(with luggage) to get to our room. The room is so old school, I too frightened to go to sleep.We arrived at the hotel at a little past 11pm.. making our journey to France 12 hours long!!



we decided to have breakfast at our hotel (baquette, cheese, jam, coffee). how french!


what is this for?
