A quick Blast over to Europe April 2013

Sun 28.4.13 I left home @ 5.45am to meet up with my pal Phil down at Cambridge. From the Mcdonalds we got fuel & headed South to Dover, b4 getting to the ferry we re-fuelled & grabbed a Sandwich then off to the ferry port. Once we docked in Calais & no time to waste it was off to my aunts to meet up with my parents and spend the night have a meal then bed. Monday, up showered,breakfast & a bit of messing about we left Erre approx 12pm. headeing out to Lille then straight in to the city centre of Brugges to park up. We had a good few hours walking round Brugges, bought some bits & not forgetting some Belgium Chocolates for the wifes. From Brugges we headed back to Calais, booked in to the hotel B&B for the night, showered then out for a meal b4 getting our heads down. Tuesday we were down at breakfast 7am local time then off to catch the ferry home. I covered about 741 miles on the 3 day trip, the whole purpose of the trip was to go to Europe again but also to meet up with my parents who did not know I was going to be at my aunts, so Yes they were Surprized to see me. The bike has gone in to the garage Sat 4.5.13 for a service b4 Jill & I go on our trip touring Scotland in 2 weeks.(19th May) My Route From home to Dover Sunday 28.4.13.
