And they’re off



After spending nearly two hours collecting the camper van and being taught how everything works we had to pack quickly. We were treated to red arrows fly past on the M20 on the way to the tunnel. Check in and transit to France was easy and we even had time to unpack and make the bed. We arrived at Ypres at about 7pm and navigated an automatic check in to the camp site. The crowds at the Menen gate for the ceremony were large and there was a platoon of cadets on parade. We now have biere de Flandres and 1.2kg of moules. There seems to be a festival here with a canoe water polo event so plenty to see tomorrow.
