  1. That's fair enough, but you wouldnt expect him to say 'oh May 17th is the day - book your ferries and flights now and we will let you go.' That would be ridiculous. drip feeding positive news is dangerous and so my feeling is they will keep saying no travel until they suddenly announce we are good to go. They are still trying to enforce the rules until that date, if they announce that is final then by beginning of may people will be watering down the rules and doing what they like. With the ongoing positive news on Vax, I would be interested to see a graph of age ranges of who is getting
  2. Well weve booked overnight 8th July Ply to Roscoff surely by then we will be able to go?
  3. Found this Motoring in Europe guide from TT 1972 . some great info on TT in there and some interesting stuff on Duty Free Allowances and travel planning.
  4. Yes, I am sure this was Dover calais, we then drove down to the southern alps for a family skiing holiday.
  5. One photo i found, I think from March/April 1979
  6. On a crossing like that you were lucky the sea air didn't rust out the Panda before you got to France!!
  7. I've recently been clearing through my mums house after she passed away, and have come across our old scrap books of holidays touring with our caravan to France in the late 60's and early 70's. I've scanned some of the more interesting stuff and will post some of it on this thread. Hope you enjoy.

  8. Crikey watching those films made me feel seasick. Terrible camera work but nonetheless interesting.
  9. Plus my wife works in a vets and she says that if you are staying for longer the vets are recommending that when you get to France go to a vets and get a Euro pet passport for the animal that will apparently last for a few years. Not sure if this is possible but it is the advice their vets are giving.
  10. Ah ok, its not a major deal just wondered what was what.
  11. We've recently booked a trip in February to go to do some stuff at our holiday home. We booked MSM Portsmouth to Caen overnight which is fine and coming back weve booked cherbourg to Portsmouth overnight on Galicia. We've booked a commodore cabin on the return on Galicia, but it's saying that the Club lounge is full. I thought this came with a commodore cabin booking, or am I mistaken? I guess it could be that the lounge isn't open during these times? Any help much appreciated.
  12. I cannot see what the problem is here. Go to the vet within ten days of travel (make an appointment first) make sure your pets are healthy and then travel the route you planned. It's not as bad as all the scaremongerers are forecasting. The limit for travel with the pet is four months - this is no problem as people are saying, because as visitors we can only travel for three months anyway. There is far too much anti government posturing going on. If you follow the rules you will be fine, it's not rocket science.
  13. Of course it's not this simple. We live an hour and half from Plynouth and three and half from Portsmouth, so although Roscoff to Bordeaux for us would seem a longer journey than St Malo to Bordeaux, the journey before the ferry makes it a no brainer for us to go from Plymouth to Roscoff. That said the way things are going we could well be travelling to Bordeaux via the Chunnell as by spring next year options may be wearing thin! That make sit a massive journey!
  14. We literally got back from France last night on Armorique into Plymouth, having gone over on the Pont two and a half weeks ago. We were visiting our new holiday home in the Lot et garonne for the first time and had loads of house stuff to do. We enjoyed both crossings, but we have a few comments. Pont Aven was fine but deserted; I find it mind boggling that these ferries are running on such low capacity. Is this choice by BF or a lack of uptake. Probably both. The food on the PA self service was dreadful when we left Plymouth; looked like it had been sat there all day. Our return on Armorique
