We packed up a slightly damp tent this morning, it had to rain the night before we left, and set off at a reasonable time to have a nice journey back up to Calais for our evening ferry. It is always a little sad to be leaving a holiday, but actually this time the weather hadn’t been that great so I guess there wasn’t quite so much to miss. Nonetheless it had been an enjoyable holiday.
Everything was going so well on the journey, we were well ahead of schedule and even contemplating the possibility that we might get an earlier ferry. That was until the car broke down at about lunch time somewhere near Evreux, on a bank holiday. Not good timing!
The rest of the day was lost waiting for a pick up truck being told the car was not driveable, then towing the car to a little village garage where we waited about 3 hours for a taxi to take us to Rouen to collect a hire car for us to drive to Calais! Phew its almost as tiring writing it as it was doing the journey!!! We calculated that including our car the whole trip from the campsite back to our home in England included 7 different vehicles, and about 36 hours!
There really wasn’t much to take photos of, maybe the wonderful car park we were broken down in? Nothing very inspiring, but I thought it would be funny to take a photo of our poor car as we left it in the hands of Mr Petit at his garage somewhere in the middle of nowhere! Note our bikes are still on the back, and all our things still in the car!!
