  1. I'm with you @KenTownley loved a Thursday evening departure from Plymouth after an early loading and as you say a great meal in La Flora. We have had many a great long weekend and filling the car to the brim at a certain wine establishment in Roscoff. With the new timetable (if it happens) it's going to be a Tuesday departure this year. Never mind longer in France cant be bad.
  2. Cant see BF berthing on the side opposite the cruise terminal, if it does its an easy walk over the bridge and the tram stop is at the bottom of the steps. It is also the end of the blue line so you cant go the wrong way! from memory its only about 2 euro into Porto centre arriving about 30 mins later. The best way to get into town is on the 500 bus which hugs the coast with spectacular views, its a double decker so even better. I have walked this route three times on the camino to santiago and cant wait to return. Its less than 3km from the port onto the main m/way that takes you north or south.
  3. Had my second jab yesterday and it was updated on the NHS app by the time i got back in my car in the Dr's car park.
  4. I'm with Saga and I asked for a green card on renewal last month. Arrived a couple of days later printed on white paper for length of the insurance. Lady said something about It had to be sent from them and couldnt be downloaded. Didnt listen much as I was internally celebrating getting her to knock £50 of my premium by dropping 4000 miles off my annual mileage.
  5. This story has appeared in Plymouth Live. Cant see it happening in a month of sundays. https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/news/plymouth-news/brittany-ferries-travel-cornwall-take-5228370?utm_source=linkCopy&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebar
  6. Thanks for all the replies, a visit to my local bike shop got me wondering. One of the staff started telling me about different countries had strange rules when you transport them in a car. He said some insist on the batteries being removed and stored in individual bags, some dont allow them to be carried on the rear of the car. When pressed couldnt come up with any hard evidence of these strange requirements. I was going to remove them anyway and store separate for protection in a cloth bag inside a cool bag to keep out of the sun in Spain. Cant wait for the opportunity to travel again.
  7. Hi all, I am thinking of taking our two folding electric bikes inside our car both to France and Spain when we are able. As they are Li-on ,are there any special rules transporting them. I cant find anything on the BF website. They are bulk standard models. Regards
  8. Pont Aven is now out in the bay doing her normal hanging around. Is this so Armorique can dock in the morning or running as normal?
  9. BBC Radio Devon has just announced tonights Plymouth - Roscoff is cancelled.
  10. I know this is not the Armorique but on our return trip to Santander on the Pont Aven full english was available together with croissants and petit pain. Croissants etc are individually plated on paper plates.
  11. I totally agree, the way the mask wearing has been enforced is so good. We are 20m from the sea and everyone has them on. The local Police regularly patrol the beach in their buggy and there are new beach security staff patrolling as well. We both feel far safer here than back home.
  12. Yes that was my interpretation of the latest message, Obviously its costing us in moving the booking and we are adding it into the total holiday costs so far.
  13. As we left before the latest do not travel dictate all is fine, both car, breakdown and personal Ins Ok.
  14. In between villages called Palomares and Garrucha, just off the A7. One hour north of Almeria and two south of Alicante.
  15. A question for those of you who have a better crystal ball than mine that cracked in the extreme heat in Spain. We have put back our return to UK, Santander -Plymouth one week as people cancelled in the apartment we are using. Its happened again so we have the opportunity to extend another week and return on the 12th August sailing. Has anyone heard if many people who had booked on the Spanish sailings have cancelled due to the new quarantine requirement on return? I was wondering if lack of numbers would make BF consolidate sailings to enable continuation of services. We have no problems with the 2 week isolation at home as retired and it may well change by then. I have a hard hat ready, so don't hold back. So would you or wouldn't you ? All opinions welcome. There may be something glaringly obvious that we have not considered. Regards Bisnick.
