On day 9 we woke up early and took a train to the Gare du Nord Station. We were sad to be leaving our beloved Paris but since we plan on going back sometime in the near future we weren’t too concern.
I had my last pastry in Paris at the station.
We took a TGV train from Paris to Calais, France. Seeing some of the French countryside on the train was pretty amazing. The station itself was a tad confusing since they wait until 10 minutes before our train departs to tell you what platform you should wait on. Once they list the platform you have to dash to the train and find the right car to go on. The train we went on was very quiet and relaxing.
The little town of Calais was very cute.
If you have been reading about our honeymoon adventures you know what when we first went to Paris we arrived via the Eurostar but since we wanted to experience something different we took the P & O Ferry from Calais to Dover and then a train back into London. From the little town we decided to take a taxi to the ferry terminal but you can take a bus if you want to save some money.
We had yummy Indian food onboard the Pride of Calais ferry.
The ferry provided a shuttle that took us to the terminal and from there we took a taxi up to Dover Castle.
If you haven’t been following our adventures then you might be asking yourself what about our luggage? Since we like to travel lightly and we bought very few souvenirs we carried our bag backs with us to the castle.
Can you see the hubby waving at me?
When we got tired of walking around the beautiful castle we asked one of the workers if they could call a taxi for us and we went on our way. We took a train from Dover Priory to the Victoria Station and from there the underground to the Earls Court Station. The train ride was lovely since we got to see a lot of the countryside.
We stayed at Base 2 Stay in Kensington and we love the room we got. What we loved about our hotel was that they recommended a great place to eat and we got 10% off because we were staying at Base2Stay. Orjowan was so good that we had it for dinner the night we arrived and for lunch the next day.
For dessert we had the hubby’s favorite, baklava.
