All quiet on Tunnel trip.

Just back from an overnighter.

Nothing much to report. Thanks to the half-term hols no school traffic to hold us up so got off to a flying start. Excellent journey down to The Tunnel so got an earlier train.

Straight up to Adinkerke and apart from a couple of foreigners it was empty although Mrs eezy went in Real XL and said it was packed.. Staff changed again. I'd recommend anybody beforehand to know exactly how many cartons, sleeves, packets or whatever you should have and how much it should cost because this lot of staff have not got a clue! (Sorry to say this Peter if you are looking in but the errors are both ways-too little and too much).

Even Auchan was empty at 9am this morning.

Saw no migrants at all but extra police patrols around town. On return handed over passports and an alarm sounded. The woman said ''I have to stop what I'm doing'' and closed up. 2 minutes later alarm stopped and she handed back passports with nothing said.

Miserable journey back up the M1 with stop/start traffic but otherwise no problems.

Re: All quiet on Tunnel trip.

Was the Alarm for your passport check or Fire Alarm ?

Glad your back in one piece.

Re: All quiet on Tunnel trip.

I don't know what the alarm was for. I suspect that the speed at which she shut the kiosk down, it was a security alarm maybe intruders. We didn't see anything.

It was a beautiful sunny day all the way down and up to Addy and back. The sun was a problem driving on that twisty bit of the A16 around Calais, very strong and low in the sky. Bloody freezing though. Only bit of snow we seen was slush on the windows of a car parked next to us at Auchan this morning.

Only other problem we had, I had updated my Garmin map and software and the traffic news would not work. When I got back I see there was a software update to fix it. Might have saved us the grief on the M1 otherwise.
