Day 3 - Guînes, France to Laventie, France

We woke up early and broke camp. We had taken showers the night before, so after packing the bags we were rearing and ready to go. But first, we really wanted freshly baked, French pastries for breakfast—because when on bicycle on holiday, we definitely do not count calories…

Day 2 - Dover, England to Guînes, Fance

We woke up around 7:30am, ate breakfast then loaded up the bikes. (When we stay at hotels we take off all the panniers and either store our bikes in the hotel room or in somewhere provided by the hotel.) As we made our way over towards the ferry, we took our time riding along the pier, soaking up the crisp seaside air and gawking at beautiful 'White Cliffs of Dover.' When we got to the entrance we coincidently ran into another bike tourist from US; it was fun to ride with him and figure out where we were supposed to go.

Bicycle Holiday 2018 - Day 1 - Cambridge to Dover (multimodal)

We have had a lot of new adventures and changes happening so far this year and we always say we’ll get around to updating the blog but then things get so busy that we never do. Well, I’m setting a new goal for myself to update our family blog AT LEAST once a week. So here goes!

The last grand adventure we went on was our bike tour through Europe. We ended up cycling 546 miles through five different countries, taking several trains and a few ferries along the way. I’ll break the trip down into a day-by-day series of posts over the next few weeks, so you can read about our (mis)adventures, look at the routes we took, and see some of the wonders we saw. I’ll start at the beginning.
