So apparently you need the following to drive into France; A breathalyser test A red warning triangle A high visibility vest Stickers to put on your headlamps (apparently our British lights are too […]
GUEST ENTRY: GEORGIE HARRIS Two weeks, two countries, one tent. What could possibly go wrong?? With previous recreational camping, and festival, experience one should be an expert in assembling a tent. However, day one of the trip, after a few hours spent in the picturesque town of Le Harve (the main port used for shipment […]
