I often seem to find myself in service stations early morning en-route somewhere. This one is a familiar stop for us, just a few miles away from the Euro Tunnel terminal. I wasn’t quite awake yet, so a muffin and the largest coffee I could find were the order of the day.
I’m a big fan of the Euro Tunnel, it’s so easy to access mainland Europe from here, drive onto a train carriage and 30 minutes later drive straight off again into France, it’s so much cheaper and quicker than flying. France, Belgium and the Netherlands are all within an hour and a half drive and this time Belgium was to be our destination.
As this was just a short trip we wanted to make the most of our time so we headed straight away from the terminal and in the direction of Brugge. We have been before, but we took my parents over with us and my mum in particular has wanted to go to Brugge for many years.
