Leaving midday on Wednesday the 26th June we started our holiday driving from Cornwall to Essex then spent a few overnight stays at a friends house in Essex. We were then up at 3am on the Friday to drive the seemingly short 90 minute drive down to the docks of Dover. After the previous 6 hour drive from Cornwall to Essex this seamed a breeze even at that hour of the morning.
We boarded the ferry and set off for Dunkirk, all catching up on a bit of sleep on the ferry. After a 2 hour channel crossing we arrived at Dunkirk and followed our friends with the Sat Nav to the Chimay car show.
Arriving in the small town of Chimay the roads consisted of only classic air cooled Volkswagens, and it was such an amazing site to see. The rev of engines filled the air and the excitement and the atmosphere for the weekend's festival ahead could be felt everywhere.
