Bruges to Shrewsbury

By bus and car

all seasons in one day

We had booked tickets on a Eurolines bus from Bruges to Dover (47 euros each) because it is no longer possible to get a ferry across the Channel from Belgium and, in fact, only one ferry from France still allows foot passengers. We had not been given the exact itinerary and assumed the bus would take the ferry at Dunkerque or Calais. However, after just a few minutes on the bus, it was announced we were going through the Eurotunnel - an interesting new experience but not for claustrophobic Jeni. But, she made it through and I still have the scars in my arm to prove it. At Dover we picked up a rental car and drove 4 hours to Rob and Jo's place in Shrewsbury

By the way, I would not suggest getting a Toyota Aygo as a rental car unless you are doing nothing but city driving
