After a day of stop, start and shall we, shan’t we, two of our vans finally reached the Eurotunnel terminal where the snowy weather and the half-term rush were causing a fair amount of disruption between them.

One of our vans is handling our scheduled February European trip, and the second is our special quarantine van. We’re using this for the transit of Zara, Adolfo and Kenzo, feline friends who’ve travelled from South Africa and are returning to their home in Spain.

Just a glimpse here of snow piled high, cars in queues and frustrated drivers — and it’s only 9am! But at least we’re on our way now.
More on Zara, Adolfo and Kenzo later.
