Each sailing of the Dover to Calais ferry takes with it a host of British holidaymakers, eager to enjoy the fruits and alien cultures of the continent, and the latest departure is no different.
A husband and wife with their own parents are setting out aboard their reliable Dormobile (reliable that is, except for its consistently punctured wheels); a pair of young lovers are embarking on a dirty weekend of romance; young parents are taking their brood away in a shiny new Mini; and an unlikely looking young couple are travelling to France on foot, to hike and camp in nature.
Arriving in France, the disparate groups begin to go their own ways with varied success! Dormobile Grandad meets a German traveller and the once-adversaries spark up an unlikely friendship, whilst the camping couple seem to be drifting apart.
Mum and Dad from the Dormobile endeavour to enjoy some time alone but the curious French customs (not to mention the presence of Grandma) keep getting in their way; and the young lovers ensconce themselves into a nearby hotel.
Amidst the varied commotion these travellers are causing, it looks set to be a rather busy few days for the local gendarme!
