.: White Cliffs of Dover :.

The cliffs have great symbolic value in Britain because they face towards Continental Europe across the narrowest part of the English Channel, where invasions have historically threatened and against which the cliffs form a symbolic guard. Because crossing at Dover was the primary route to the continent before the advent of air travel, the white line of cliffs also formed the first or last sight of England for travellers.

For a while I have been curious to explore these cliffs in Dover and had my quick opportunity on my weekend away in Lille. Even though we were tired and looking forward to reach home, we had to stop for some quick photos. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great and time was short. It’s worth a visit later on. I’ll have to be back and explore a bit better.

Me! 🙂

It was really windy, so I almost don’t have any photos. Also it was pretty cold!
