Just Saying #1 – Le Shuttle

We love France. We love travelling in the car. Put those two together & it isn't surprising that we have been on Euro Tunnel ( fondly referred to as 'The Shuttle') many times. The idea of a direct link between the UK and the Continent had been the dream of many since 1802 but it finally came to fruition in 1994. The tunnel which carries a rail link is 250 feet deep below the English Channel and gives access to Europe in around 30 minutes.

We are in France at the moment and as we were reading the paper and letting the 'train take the strain' my mind wandered back to our first 'under water' journey and my thoughts, which were just the same today: you can't see any fish. Missed opportunity I think.

 

Just saying!
