We arrived in Dover in plenty of time, and with calm seas and a glorious sky all around, had a very pleasant crossing across the Channel.
Arriving on the other side, the convoy continued on through the top end of France, before arriving at camp around 4pm, local time.
Our kit van was already on-site, so we unloaded, unpacked and put up our tents and spent some time orienting ourselves with the site – a fabulous 20 hectaire woodland site within the rural district of Loppem, near Brugge.
Following a hearty 3-course(!) meal, we had relaxing evening and discussed the week ahead, before off to bed to be ready for the first activity in the morning.
