we took the train to oostend from brussels, but when we arrived found out that you can no longer go as a footpassenger on the ferries from there. after much humming&hawing, we went to calais, (which was so horrible that we even took a taxi to the ferry terminal) and then got on a ferry to dover.
and then finally, bus to london where i continued on (night-bus...) to glasgow.
it was a really brilliant trip. if anyone wants any info on anything (e.g. how much it cost or where to find the best falafel in budapest feel free to get in touch).
