Then we checked out of the hotel and picked up our diesel Mercedes 220 CDI rental car from the Hertz at Marble Arch (thanks to our sponsor Hertz). After a look at my Nokia's Google Maps, Ryan and I drove 140km from London to Dover.
We drove our car into the Northfolk ferry to Dunkirk, France, and checked into our VIP Lounge. First Class is only an extra £8 per person more, so we thought we'd give it a go. There is free wine or beer, a coffee machine, fruits and biscuits and even free wifi! And our car gets priority getting on and off the ferry.
You can see the White Cliffs of Dover in this shot from the lounge window.
It's a two hour ferry ride for the car and the two of us. Then another long drive to Zoetermeer, our final destination.
