After we visited Canterbury we drove over to Dover where the plan was, we would stay a couple of nights and see the sights.

The first night we saw the sights of the hotel pub, which I can happily say was the first success of Dover, would our luck hold out?

The next morning we woke up to snow, which both of us thought was GREAT (probably the only people in England).

We went for a walk along the seaside and had a full English breakfast at a little cafe nearby.

We then decided to start on our tourist adventure which was to see Dover Castle. Unfortunately what we didn’t realize is that English people and snow don’t mix, so they closed the road to the castle and didn’t let anyone up there.

On the way down from the castle road, we came across an old church that had been abandoned, that was pretty neat.

As the castle was shut we decided to walk to another tourist attraction in Dover, The Roman Painted House. However we found out that even this was affected by the snow.

The next morning we left for home via Leeds Castle, but on the way out of town we got to see some of the White Cliffs, and where gun placements were dug into them, very cool.

All in all not bad I say.

Stay tuned for Leeds Castle. Rob
