  1. And will you get insurance?
  2. Thanks for the answer. I travelled on a regular ro-ro ship with no passengers years ago from Mestre/Venice to Pireus. It was built to fit the Corinth canal. After Pireus it continued to Jeddah. There were a pair of matching ships owned by a Greek/Saudi company called Saramat.
  3. Showing my ignorance but what is the precise difference between a Ferry, a Ro-Ro Ferry and a Ro-Ro ship?
  4. AFAIK they open when they have both enough vaccines and enough people. The one I went to was manned by all the local doctors who were back at their surgeries the next day.
  5. Just think how angry they will be when pubs are only open to over 65s. 😉
  6. Take the step. We have hardly ever booked much in advance. We once flew to Tenerife with nothing booked at all. Just drove around the area we wanted to stay and asked apartment block caretakers.
  7. Evidence of this is that almost the only travel advertising now carried by newspapers is for cruises.
  8. I am still puzzled. Drivers from the USA can drive in the UK and EU with just a piece of plastic. Many get that piece of plastic after one day of tuition in the school playground.
  9. I am puzzled why I can drive and hire cars in the USA, Mexico, and many other countries with my plastic licence but that EU are getting their knickers in a twist over IDP.
  10. I met some classic car owners who had booked to sail Plymouth - Santander. PA had a problem and they had to go to Roscoff and drive across France.
  11. Just wait. We'll all be lot healthier when we eat all that fish we can't export. 😂
  12. It all depends on the number of vaccines delivered. Doing a bit of simple mathematics following a statement from Cornwall's chief Pharmacist it will take two years on current numbers to have Cornwall covered. The early euphoria is fading a bit about the rollout. While free travel might happen quickly free SAFE travel will take longer.
  13. There was a time when the Pont Aven had some Spanish dishes on the menu, even on French crossings. I especially liked what the Basques call "puddins" which are a kind of savoury mousse.

    Drakes Island

    As its named after that famous pirate Francis Drake perhaps a skull and cross bones? As an aside I was in Campeche, Mexico where Drake sailed up and down bombarding the town and doing a lot of damage. We stayed at the Francis Drake Hotel. I cannot see Plymouth having an Adolf Hitler hotel to commemorate that city's bombardment.
