Having eaten out the night before Dasvid and Lisa had a defrosted mixed grill to eat for breakfast, so a slow get up saw a cooked breakfast before heading off to the wildlife park. This was good for our sore heads from all the strange drinks the night before.
Due to the thunder storms the wildlife park was quite quiet, it was still warm so it was funny to see the French and Belgium people all with their coats and long trousers- weirdos.
The tractor safari was fun, we saw plenty of animals and sites. The hour and half flew by and we were back at the start in no time.
From Hans-Sur-Lesse we headed to Tounai this is a nice town not too far for the return trip to Calais in the morning best of all it’s a free stopover right in the centre of town.
On the drive into Tournai we saw large posters advertising a pop concert, we didn’t expect it to be in the actual town and free. As we walked into the main square you couldn’t miss the huge stage and as the evening went on the square got busier and busier. After a nice Italian meal we stood in the crowds to watch for a while but as Patrick somebody, apparently a very famous French celebrity came on stage we decided to leave.
It soon became apparent the hundreds of people at the concert had all parked in our car park! It was rammed, every tiny bit of space had a car in it we hoped the concert goers would return quietly. The concert ended with a firework display which when it started filled us all with fear thinking it was gun shots, we were relieved when we saw the fireworks above the trees. It was nice of them to put on fireworks for our final evening and the polite Belgium party goers did return quietly as the car park was empty in the morning and we didn’t hear a thing.
From here it will be a boring drive back to the Tunnel and then home. The next Tour will be in July…
