    If you are planning your first trip by ferry to Calias, this helpful little video will show you what to expect. It really is this simple
    It starts as you leave the ferry in Calais.

    need to make sure which lane you are in

    The road slips up ahead and you need to know which way you are heading... right goes towards the North and left drops South cross over fro some reason... but it is well sign posted .. if in doubt follow cite europe and you can get back on the main routes wiser after that..
    (fall back).

    However at night they often send you off the train not past the petrol station, but the other way round and that will get you mixed up.. it seems the night trains do that so they can work on the tracks.

    While looking at Tonkas videos I found this one. Sounds like a good example of how not to do things. I couldn't believe she was trying to repair leaks by sticking floor tiles on the inside of the walls :Eeek:
