Leaving on a Boat

We left home in Holland about 9o clock. At 3 pm our boat from
dunekerque left for Dover. We found ourselves a camping and settled a bit. Sharing the small camper with 4 appears not as easy as it sounds.
There is simply no place to be on your own. England however is very charming. Arriving at first looks very romantic, a white shore... Reminded me
of a song. Into the west, which is used in the LOTR triology. But that is of no further interest. We went with a boat company called Norfolk, all fine.
However the docks of Dover are grey and industrial from close by. After our tom-tom remebered us to drive on the left side of the road, another great thing of great brittain. We were able to leave the diesel smelling docks. I don't think diesel really smells bad. A bit like a new car... This
whole story is putting brittain into a bad perspective. Do remember that I don't usually like big cities as well. The language is
just fantastic. I speak and write in English fair enough, but learned it only from books and movies. So great to hear someone really
use it. And there' s no way anyone can reproduce a full englishman in his accent.
