There were a fair few frantic last-minute errands to be run before our departure on Tuesday night. Ensuring we had copies of all our visas and documents and obtaining an international driver permit which we had neglected up until this point.
The car was almost ready, but we had to add a few finishing touches such as our handmade roof rack and we were finally set.
We caught the 3am ferry from Dover and drove during the night through France, Brussels and Amsterdam to Antwerp which led us to discover we had one broken headlight. The task of fixing it wasn’t on the to do list so we carried on.
Upon arrival we were welcomed by our generous host for our stay (thanks David). After a short recharge we toured the city to take in the sights. Our highlight was probably the train station as we both agreed that despite not previously having a favourite train station this was now it, a must visit if you’re ever there along with St Anna’s tunnel.
As the sun went down we indulged ourselves with a colourful selection of Belgian beers. The entertainment for the evening was a Luka Modrić masterclass (England V Croatia World Cup semi-final). After such a spectacle we certainly weren’t ready to go home and so the night continued with our new found Croatian friends.
