We had a smooth crossing from Dover to Calais and then a long drive through France, Belgium and the Netherlands to get to Germany.
Our main goal was to visit Scandinavia during June and July, as we had read that these countries were at their warmest and most inviting to visitors during this time. It was therefore not our intention to ignore the other European countries we travelled through, but rather that we would come back to them at a later stage, as we were confident that their good weather would continue into the autumn months.
Xav could not cross Belgium without trying the famous “boulette Liègeoise”: a pork meatball with onion, egg, parsley and some spices. Apparently delicious on the road!
