Our Summer Abroad – Travelling Down

Dover Beach

Dover is a pretty splendid place in the sunshine. The castle, the cliffs and the surrounding downs all look worthy of further exploration.

Bock casemate

The Bock casemate – part of Luxembourg’s fortifications – proved to be a good place to explore in some less desirable weather. I remember enjoying the tunnels and passages here when I visited many, many years ago, that time on the way to my first visit to Switzerland. Since then even more passages have been opened to the public.

  1. Dover is a much nicer place than you would think. We visited when I was a kid and I can confirm the castle was great and view across the channel to France from the Downs with all the ships/ferries was an exciting prospect. We caught the ferry from there last year but it was chucking it down with rain so no chance to enjoy the delights
