Day 35 Antwerp to Folkestone

overcast 15 °C
View Touring Germany on RickAdderley's travel map.

We were looking forward to a dry ride today as per the weather forecast, mmmmmmm 😏. We packed up in the underground car park:


...and left Antwerp at 0950h. The cobbled streets made slow going and we had to refuel before we really started but, at least it was dry, we were on our way to the tunnel in Calais.

We were pleased that we put all of our gear on as we rode through 2 heavy belts of rain but, otherwise, it was a good journey. We had a short stop for a cuppa, we didn't want to eat as we had "Flexi" tickets for the lounge and there should be food and refreshments there. It was a longish journey, about 130 miles, and we were booked on the 1520 train but we could actually catch any train with our tickets.

We checked in at the terminal and went into the lounge, we had a light lunch and caught an earlier train at 1445h:


...and checked into the Holiday Inn Express, Folkestone for our overnight stop remembering to adjust our watches, the trike does it automatically.

We had a nice evening meal in Folkestone, I had a chicken soup and we shared a pizza and chips. We have had a great time but are looking forward to going home, home is where the heart is. Looking forward to our next one though 😅.
