Eurotunnel to Paris

Sitting in Plymouth in January and February would be cold and wet so we have decided to take a land-cation in France.  We are traveling via voiture until the end of February when we plan to return to England and get Terrapin ready for more sailing.

Our adventure started with a trip through the EuroTunnel, which is essentially a train that runs under the English Channel.  We left Folkestone, England and arrived in Calais, France 35 minutes later.  The next day was a short drive to Paris via Kortrijk, Belgium where my grandmother was born in 1909.  We have an AirBnB apartment rented for the next couple weeks in Paris to explore and see world famous landmarks.

Um, my ability to speak French serves no purpose here
