Nearly there!!

Heidelberg – view from our hotel

Heidelberg Germany to Rochefort Belgium

This part of our trip is only a quick run through Europe to Abingdon England, after departing the Silk Road in Turkey. There are many routes from the East to the West and we have explored one of the main ones.

La Malle Poste a delightful small hotel in Belgium – view from our window

Heidelberg is one of those cities you are immediately drawn too and  even though we spent only a short time ther we would love to return on another journey.

We had a relatively easy run down the freeway but had to divert due to a freeway closure. This detour took us through thick forests, open plains of wheat and small villages. We reached Rochefort with plenty of time to cool off with a swim  and enjoy the town and the small charming stone boutique hotel, Le Malle Poste we are staying in.

Rochefort Belgium in the main street

Rochefort  Belgium to Calais France

We are almost there! It has flown by and it is hard to believe we have travelled over 25,000kms. We have a HUGE day tomorrow for our Chunnel crossing and arrival in Abingdon.

We left Rochefort early so we could enjoy a scenic drive on the back roads of Belgium and France. We travelled through the Ardennes onto Calais.

One thought on “Nearly there!!

  1. Hi Peter and Paula,
    Congratulations, well done.
    I prayed for you as I followed your adventures. So excited that you made it safely.
    Waiting to sharing a beer on your return.
    Do you want a lift from the airport?

    Regards
    John Odorisio
