i have to make mention of the tabac on the belgian border. infact i think it is just in belgium.
i got a burst tyre whilst filling up at the garage next door and although the attendant didnt speak english, he quickly called the lady from the tabac who not only spoke good english, but was very helpful in trying to help me with my problem. You see my spare had already got a flat and it was a sunday, so nothing was open. Eventually, the garage attendant managed to get a man to come out and fix the tyre for only 60 euro on a sunday. we thought that good value. the lady from the tabac wanted nothing just reccomendation, which is what i am doing. Incidentally Bray dunes and the surrounding area is very nice and would recommend it.
