La Belle Vie en France

Our journey into purchasing and rennovating our fermette in the South West of France

So sadly, due to the need to spend some time in our UK house in self isolation so we can finalise the sale, we have had to make our way merrily through France to reach the port of Calais. The crossing was a bit rough due to the current storm that is hitting the UK, so there was many a green face to be seen hiding behind the mandatory face mask.
Despite the crossing and the usual roadworks on all routes in and out of Dover the journey has been uneventful, if not long. As with all things British, having to fill out an additional passenger location form because we caught an earlier ferry became very frustrating especially when after several attempts it finally was received by email so we could have a copy to show. You just have to love the bureaucracy of it all and also the inadequate user interface of completing the process and then having to complete a new one instead of being able to amend the original. I am sure that someone earnt a fortune from this somewhere!!
Anyway, enough of all that, time to soak up the English weather for a couple of weeks and then we shall be doing this journey in reverse for the last time in a long while.
