Hadn’t been planning to write anything this evening (Friday June 3rd), but might as well do something to while away the hours!
We arrived at the Chunnel terminal a mere 10 minutes late for our train so they’ve fitted us onto the next available… unfortunately, being on a Friday when it’s apparently busier (‘though the car park doesn’t support that!) and the fact that it was after 10:30pm, the next available space isn’t until the 2:09AM crossing! Apparently they have fewer & shorter trains in the evening!
It’s then 35 minutes through the tunnel & gaining an hour as we cross to France, so suddenly it will be 3:30AM or so… then a 30 minute journey to our hotel!!
We did ask about cancelling & going early tomorrow & finding a local hotel… unfortunately, that means that we’d just go onto the “wait & see” list & being a Saturday, would probably have to wait a long time, so we’ve decided to hang on & go at 2.
The positive side of this is that I’m now making use of free wifi to do some more updates!
