Hello all, as some of you may know me and Mike leave for our 6 month trip around europe in Eric (our MH) this Tuesday! (Find our blog here 1 Motorhome, 2 Lads, 1 massive trip) The reason for this post is to ask whether anyone has any recommendations of places to visit or to stay the night between arriving in Calais on the ferry and on our way to Paris. We leave Dover at 12pm so will be in Calais in early afternoon. When we do go to Paris, either on the Tuesday or Wednesday, our plan is to find somewhere close to Paris to park up and then cycle into the centre as we don't want to drive Eric right into the centre of the town, that would be a nightmare! So the question is, shall we drive straight down from Calais and find an Aire near Paris on the day we arrive, or shall we head somewhere else and spend a day before go into the French capital? Is Lens worth a day visit for example? Or we could alternatively stick to the coast and stay somewhere there before heading down to Paris the next day? One thing to note is that we will be avoiding toll motorways at all costs. Lots of options! Any recommendations? Regards, James.
