From Rouen to home
After an excellent breakfast at the hostel, I headed for Calais and home. The weather was fine and sunny but decidedly cooler this far north. The journey passed without incident and I was soon at the Channel Tunnel entrance queuing up with fellow travellers at the check-in. I was coming back one day early so my ticket needed to be changed. If Ryanair ran the tunnel I would probably of course be charged about £375 for a last minute fare. Here, Eurotunnel charged me a 3 euro admin fee!
There was just time to eat my lunchtime picnic before the Shuttle set off and I was on my way to England. A little over an hour on the English motorways and I was home - remembering of course to ride on the left.
