    Portsmouth check-in; some advice please.

    Originally from outskirts of Durham City but used the name cos work had exiled me in Cornwall, but fortunately now retired and back home. Have used the M42/M40 link but not the A43. Fortunately not done during rush hour but certainly prefer the A46 to the M42 link and it does bypass Coventry which means a series of roundabouts which may be a problem at rush hour but normally aim for the Bretagne to St Malo so leave mid morning after getting the dogs into kennels so miss the rush hours in the midlands.

    We do A1,M18,M1,M69,A46,M40,A34,M3,M27. It's a more direct link from the M1 to the M40.

    French supermarket favourites

    The French packet soups are way superior to ours both in quality and selection although have noticed they seem to be moving more to ready made cartons now. Mainly made by Maggi so available in all the supermarkets. Also tins of Tartiflette which you definitely can't find over here. With wine we tend to take a gite and sample a few bottles while over and then get a selection of the ones we liked best to bring back.

    P & O Zeebrugge Ferry Upgrades

    Booked on the Pride of York for our holidays this September. Never been on this route before but a lot less driving from Durham than down to Portsmouth for the Bretagne.

    Driving in Paris

    i've driven in Paris once. Soon as I got to the hotel the car went into the car park till it was time to come home. An experience not to be repeated.

    Brexit may raise BF fares

    We took our own pen so if anyone wanted to rub it out they couldn't - but not saying which side would want to rub it out

    Ouistreham or Saint Malo?

    I prefer St Malo crossing cos being a lazy so and so I appreciate the more civilised arrival time so a more normal getting up time - also time for a relaxed evening meal before turning in.
