We’re in Calais, France. It’s our last day of #KimGarethEurotrip outside of England.

We checked out from our last hotel of this trip (we will be staying with mum-in-law for the rest of our holiday) and went sightseeing around Calais for a bit.

# – The pretty Belfry.

Then, we made sure we had a kilo of mussels each at lunch at a restaurant called Au Chalice before taking the ferry back to England.

# – Just as delicious as I first had it. Soft, tender and full of flavours.

Also made a video…

# – France by Gareth.

After that we drove to Dunkerque, 20 minutes away to board the ferry.

# – On deck.

Very easy to pass time in the ferry as it has shops, restaurants and even slot machines. Hubs won 20 Euros with only 1 Euro as capital hehe.

As the ferry approached England, we could see the beautiful White Cliffs of Dover.

# – Magnificent!

1 hour 45 minutes later, we were driving on England again. Weird to be driving on the left side again, which of course we all agree is really the correct side ;)

We went up to the White Cliffs for a quick visit. Stunning, stunning view of the sea and the cliffs.

# – Took my breath away.

# – Hubs was there!

# – I wuz there!

After the visit, we went to grab some fish and chips, which we ate at Dover Beach.

And now we’re back on the road, heading towards the hubs hometown, Worcester near Birmingham.

It’s been almost 6 years since we’re there. Excited to see mum-in-law!

We had lunch at a well-rated restaurant in Paris called Le Bistrot Le Peintre, established in 1900.

We had a really pleasant lunch. The profiteroles were especially delicious!

# – Lunch of salmon tartare, tomato soup, sea bream, steak and profiteroles.

Then we went to Laduree. Because, how can you not when you are in Paris, right?

# – The infamous macarons. Nice.

# – We also got a mille feuile thingy. Orgasmic! The crispy layers with the intensely vanilla and boozy cream T-T

Spotted the Notre-Dame of Paris while cruising about.

# – Notre-Dame de Paris.

Then we left Paris and made our way to Calais, our final destination of #KimGarethEurotrip outside of England.

By the time we reached Calais, I was gagging seriously for rice and clear soup. Made it happened at a restaurant called Hong Kong near our hotel.
