Overboard

The ferry from Calais to Dover is a functional vessel.

Don’t expect frills or luxury save the slightly cut price booze and perfume in the onboard gift shop.

Most of the travellers midday on a summer weekend are tired and frazzled after a long drive through France on their way back from their annual holiday.

The bar is full and usually only one till will be working.

The toilets smell faintly of vomit.
