Taking a trip to Calais

Friday, August 09, 2013 , 24 Comments

Two weeks ago the bf and I decided to go camping (yup, that's another one on my 22 before 23 list!). I had heard that Calais (France) is a wonderful place to visit. It is quiet, has a rock beach and a ferry to Dover. We just wanted to get out of the apartment for a few days to spend some quality time together.

I booked a camping spot and the next morning we packed our bags and drove to Escalles, a tiny village near Calais.




The beach is just gorgeous. Look at those massive rocks!


We took strolls by the sea. So lovely. Especially when this pretty boy strikes a pose.




Cooking a delicious pasta & we had to picknick because we forgot to bring chairs. Or a table. Or a fitting mattress. Or board games.. But at least we had each others company ;)



We couldn't resist picking up these decal temporary tattoos.




Unfortunately, after a few days we packed our bags and left. There wasn't that much to do, we weren't that prepared (woops) and the bf's back couldn't really handle it any longer.

But we couldn't leave without the obligatory mid-air-thumbs-up-jumping-shot.


How has your holiday been so far? Did you take a (camping) trip or are you planning to take one?
