Four Countries in Four Days
We have arrived. Finally. After an epic road trip we have finally arrived back in the UK. Just in time to watch and celebrate England’s success in the World Cup! We left Central Portugal on Wednesday night, with the goal of reaching Dieppe Port on Friday night to catch a ferry across to Newhaven at midnight. We decided to drive the route trying not to use toll roads, enjoy the drive and take in some beautiful scenery and villages in Spain and France.
The road trip was epic. We drove, ate lots of snacks, played countless sessions of eye spy, told stories, napped and almost lost the plot several times. Coping with a long distance road trip with two small children is certainly and art form and let’s not even mention when the sat nav takes the very, very, scenic routes down dirt tracks and farmers fields…aaarrggh…thank goodness we finally made it all in one piece!
We made the effort to stop regularly, but really wanted to drive as much as possible in the first days and arrive early in Dieppe so we could spend the day there and relax before the ferry. Our car window often presented us with views of beautiful countryside, picturesque villages and of course the omnipresent road itself. We did manage to capture a few snaps and had a lovely day in Dieppe exploring and watching France’s World Cup success. More to follow on the blog soon. In the meantime here is a couple of photos of the highlights of the rural villages in France, the beautiful fields full of sunflowers.
