Following a 50 mph journey from the Dordogne to Calais (thanks to our hire van), Neil and I finally arrived back in the UK. The white cliffs of Dover ready and waiting to greet us.
This is the second time I've done this ferry trip and the first time I could go out on the deck without getting drenched. Alas, I was able to make a video.
Located right down on the tip of the UK, Dover feels a bit left behind. Only ever passed through on one's journey to Europe.
The white cliffs. Famous as I understand it. The perfect obstacle for an invasion. As epic as ever, as our ferry slid through the waves to dock.
Driving from sunrise to sunset, our journey was coming to a close. Returning back to the UK felt relieving, having been away for only five days.
The ferry crew making preparations to dock in the terminal.
Hydraulics galore. The backbone of modern heavy lifting or mechanical moving part.
Leaving the terminal to endure another three hours of 50mph limited travel. The rental company gave us a £100 'inconvenience' fee upon returning their van.
I hope you enjoyed my video. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you wish to see more of my visual content.
