Dover

Dover is 168 kilometers or about 104 miles from Heathrow airport. It was a relatively easy drive considering how tired we were and that we were driving on the wrong side of the road. I had driven on the left on the British Island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands, but that was on very rural roads. This was my first time on freeways in heavy traffic. When we left the airport we were on a freeway in less than a killometer. We had our laptop with Microsoft's "Auto Route" (that's where the maps you see here are from) and a GPS. We were about halfway to Dover before Betty got that up and running, but from there on we knew exactly where we were. More importantly we knew exactly where to find the Churchill Hoell now the Dover Marina Hotel & Spa where we were staying for the next two nights. We were very happy when we got there about 5pm.
