It’s all early days yet..Let’s wait and see when the first camper vans and motor homes roll off the ferries..It’s all going to depend on if they make you sign a declaration the same as airlines.. So if you are caught with a cheese sandwich you could be fined €250..

Don't go abroad if you don't want to eat foreign food.
Good point although I draw the line at autoroute service area dross on the A26. It's even worse than Welcome Break.

We'll just have to scoff down out Waitrose honey roast ham sandwiches on board Le Shuttle, before we get to the Channel mid-point.

We live in Wales so the National dish is Lava-bread and cockles..Just because you live or visit a country doesn’t mean you have to like or eat their food..I don’t personally like snails or frogs legs but do accept that some people love them..

Speeding UK drivers to evade fines in EU

Many British motorists caught speeding in Europe will evade fines because information sharing agreements have ceased post-Brexit.
The EU’s Cross-Border Enforcement Directive no longer applies, French officials have said, so British-registered vehicles will no longer be sent fines for offences detected by roadside cameras. Similarly, motorists with vehicles registered in the EU caught speeding in Britain will not be sent fines.
More than 444,000 British motorists were fined for offences detected by cameras in France last year. It will cost the French £60 million a year when traffic from British motorists returns to pre-Covid levels.

I’m 1/2 welsh which might explain why i like Penclawdd cockles but not so keen on Lava-bread.

I am too and although my father was partial to a bit of fried seaweed with his breakfast eggs I always thought it looked like something the cat had coughed up and probably tasted like it too.

BTW it's usually spelt "laverbread" (bara lawr, not to be confused with bara brith which is edible and indeed quite tasty).

Or a fresh cow pat. I have only tried it once and that was once too many.
