3rd day of #KimGarethEurotrip

This was taken at the car rental place at Heathrow.

Top from H&M. Can’t remember where I got the skirt. Can’t remember where I got the scarf either. Bag from Louis Vuitton. Shoes from Bangkok. Sunglasses from Bazzarro.

We didn’t do much today. Slept in a bit and then took the tube back to Heathrow to sort our rental car out.

We wanted a fairly powerful car for driving on San Bernardino Pass, so we’re pretty happy with what we got, which is a VW Passat estate with a 2.0 turbodiesel engine…pushing out 320Nm of torque.

We drove the car back, pick our luggages and stopped by Sainsbury for snacks, bags and towels (just in case).

Then we had dinner at this place called Cantina do Gaucho for some Brazillian food. I didn’t have high expectations cause the place’s located in a pretty dowdy area.

We ordered rump steak with rice & beans as well as salmon with rice & beans.

They were surprisingly tasty! I never knew beans and rice could taste so good together!

Man, I miss it already!

After dinner we drove 1.5 hours to Dover Ferry Terminal to catch a ferry to Calais, France.

Well, right now we’re still at the ferry terminal because our ferry is at 12.30am. At time of blogging it is 11pm.

We should reach Calais at about 3am but we haven’t booked any hotel or accommodation so we reckon we might need to spend a night in the car hahahha.

Well, that’s fine cause it is all part of the adventure! Teehee.

Before I forget, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and happy holidays!
