    This morning we were approaching the turn-off for Cite Europe at about mid day when traffic started slowing and a diversion was in place to exit the motorway at the Coquelles/Cite Europe turn off. Seems some disgruntled ferry workers were lighting tyres on the motorway.
    We turned off and headed for Cite Europe and found a back entrance to the terminal. Sorted the dog. Paid a visit to the little boys room then headed for the train.
    Turns out we were the only ones on board!!

    We tried to sneak in the back way a couple of weeks ago, round the back of Citie Europe but they had put concrete blocks on the junction that takes you into the pet passport area, you could get out, but not enter.

    It all goes to show that Motorhomers have initiative, or are some of us just crafty.
