Summer Road Trip with a Mini Cooper SD Convertible from England to France...

(written by his father :-)


"Crossing the English Channel has been made a breeze with Eurotunnel. It is so effortless and a quick – a simple 35-minute ride from Folkestone to Calais. Relying on a combination of old fashioned analogue maps and a modern-day navigation system, finding our way in the pitch black dark of the night, through the narrow winding roads of northeast Normandy in search of our first night’s accommodation was an easy enough task. We arrived in comfort to the old farmhouse perched on a steep cliff overlooking the Channel waters at the edge of the picturesque village of San-Pierre-en-Port."

...the next day...

"Home to Monet, Giverny is like stepping into one of his soft-focus paintings – the village is a homage to its most famous resident. Next we headed to St Martin de Boscherville to visit the magnificent romanesque St Georges de Boscherville Abbey and then onto the Fécamp."

Note: I am not endorsing any particular car(s); this is simply a nice opportunity to show a 6 year old's pastel drawing during a European car trip with his family, and to highlight the Channel Tunnel, which is a relatively new Phenomenon :-) enabling car traffic between England and France for the first time in all of History! Directly connecting England to the Continent... :-)
