Camping with twins – part two: the journey

If you read my previous post, you’ll know I was not exactly looking forward to the journey to France. Five hours in the car from Fife to Hull, an overnight ferry crossing, then a three hour drive from Zeebrugge to Camping la Croix du Vieux Pont, Berny Rivière. With two seven month olds.

While it wasn’t a breeze, it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be! Honestly.

We allowed plenty of time for the drive – it’s a five hour journey, but we knew we needed to allow a couple of hours more to give the boys time out of their car seats. I planned ahead and found somewhere we could stop and let them have a wriggle about which wasn’t miles off route.

We also timed our journey so we would be able to get straight on to the ferry when we arrived in Hull as it would be their tea time and I couldn’t bear the thought of sitting in a queue with two screaming babies! We were in luck – sort of –  most of the screaming happened in the final bit of the drive when they decided enough was enough!
