Touring from Zeebrugge in Belgium

Has anyone started a trip from the Belgian Ferryport of Zeebrugge ?
If so , any recommendations/warnings etc. regarding routes and places of interest.
Perhaps campsite suggestions also,
Cheers.

Yes I have, and in two weeks I intend to take the ferry from Rosyth and do it again. I usually head for France straight away as I'm not taken with spending time in Belguim. I usually head for the coast road into France and I seem to remember I can be in France in a day. No problem re campsites as there are loads of them especially around the ports. Once in France I stick to the small roads and make my route up as the fancy takes me. Again, in France campsites are plentiful and cheaper than the UK. In July thre is generally no need to book hotels/b/b's as the French are still at work.

Can you remember which roads you used from Zeebrugge to France. I've taken the car a couple of times
and stayed on the main autoroutes, so not familiar with the quiet backroads.
