The docks in Dover
We’re so close to France now we can actually smell it. Calais is only an hour and a half by boat yet as soon as you set foot on French soil you feel a million miles away from the UK. It seemed even the weather improved instantly ^-^ Travelling with pets does have advantages as we found out when we were given a nice big sticker for the windscreen and were about the 5th car to board the ferry. As this was the first time we took the dogs abroad we were a little apprehensive but it is no different to travelling anywhere else with them; we made sure they had a good run before we got to Dover and left it as late as possible to arrive at the docks. And we did see people walking their dogs while we were waiting to board so if you worry about having to lock your dog in the car for ours – don’t.
