Lille trip day one

We managed to set off from School before seven o’clock this morning and headed south to Dover, stopping at the Service Station on the way.

We made it to Dover in good time but unfortunately there wasn’t space on the earlier ferry so we waited for the next one which was empty. We basically had the run of the ship. We had some lunch on the boat and then it was back on the coach for the next bit of the journey to Lille itself. We hit the town at rush hour unfortunately but eventually we saw the Ferris wheel and knew we’d arrived at the Christmas Market.

We were lucky with the weather – not cold.and not raining which was great. We had a good couple of hours to explore the different stalls while the teachers even had a little warm grape juice!

Eventually we met up again by the huge tree and the Ferris wheel and met the coach which took us to our hotel.

A great first day but a tiring one so off to bed now and up early for Bruges in the morning. Everybody is fine so don’t worry Mums and Dads! More blog tomorrow. Stay tuned. Bon nuit.
