Spider Does Belgium
Well did my first big trip in the Spider on Sunday set of at 7am down to Dover from Shropshire very clear roads very foggy roads though .
We arrived down at Dover ahead of schedule , I had built I in far too much time in for delays and we were able to jump on an earlier P&O ferry.(Recommend up grading to club class)
Arrived in Calais and was very worried about driving on right hand side as had never driven before in Europe but was not too bad at all .
Sun was out so roof came down Sat nav on and we headed to Ypres , bloody brilliant started loving it cruising down the motorway with stereo on big smile in my face.
Arrived at Ypres with no dramas lovely town with amazing history , has the most beautiful car park ever in the centre , able to drive through the Menin gate .Stayed for 2 days and would have liked to stay longer.
Then on to Bruges, weather had started to turn so no roof down today , excellent looking city lots of tourists though walking around with selfy sticks .Another 2 days being a typical tourist, not touching the car .
Drove back on Thursday steady driver back .
Car performance was excellent there and back ,750 miles very proud of her .The driving never really felt a chore, cruise control would have been a bonus but not essential.
Would definitely do a big trip again , probably longer so we can get further south to the sunshine .
