"Calais - passing through and there for the day!" Calais by gordonilla
Calais Travel Guide: 102 reviews and 212 photos
A Finnish friend, Jani, was visiting me in London, and i had said how easy it was to get to France, even for the day. I checked flight and train prices and found these to be quite high - so we travelled by train to Dover to get the ferry across to Calais.
To my surpise we managed to get a seat on the hovercraft, sadly no longer in service. The cost was £6 return for each of us!
The picture is me in Calais after a day of walking.
I had previously been to Calais as a student. We had been on a European Study tour and had returned to the UK via Calais and the hovercraft.
We got lost in our minibus, and the staff stopped to check locations with French locals.
This picture shows the only view I remembered from this trip on the secod visit.
