  1. You’ve missed out my favourite petition. https://www.change.org/p/umbongo-to-ensure-that-all-umbongo-lorries-have-a-giant-plastic-straw-glued-to-them?recruiter=45870740&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=psf_combo_share_message.pacific_post_sap_share_gmail_abi.gmail_abi&utm_term=9440eb9b5a5649ea9351b585a1cd2f8f
  2. I wouldn’t necessarily pre book but I’d there was a discount involved I would certainly be more likely to.

    BF Refits 2018-19

    Armorique suits it the best in my opinion.
  4. The problem is that a lot of MPs and certainly all the political parties (apart from one) have changed their stance on Brexit so it makes protesters like the ones in Plymouth frustrated .
  5. It’s an out of touch PM trying to please the ERG and DUP that’s the problem, I suspect the protest at the docks will attract a tiny amount of people and be futile.
  6. The survey was obviously about the possibility of extending the service to all bookings that offer the restaurant service not about an existing service on Spain sailings.
  7. This was a general survey about restaurant bookings not an email to book a table.
  8. Yep I got it , a long overdue service in my opinion.
  9. Plenty places to choose from thanks @colin , we will have to arrange to meet up at one to arrange the Stornaway handover 😉
  10. We’re staying there in June £54 for the night seemed reasonable.
  11. We liked http://la-brigantine.fr/ if you’re after an authentic creperie.
  12. Jean Marc Roue has stated in previous interviews that he saw Cap Finistere posibbly going to the Ireland/Spain route , obviously I’m aware of the size restrictions as I’m sure he is.
  13. I don’t think many folk on here would book a 4 ish day trip on an ex Russian freighter with next to no facilities.
  14. 5 couples race by land sea but not air from London to Singapore only using the price of the average air fair whilst not having mobile phones etc , which obviously involves sea travel I would say ferry travel but that would be pushing it. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p073p9xg
  15. You can mute people on here maybe that would explain it.
  16. Was just reading about the cancellations today on the relatively new Borders railway ,some job adverts are actually not accepting applicants who will rely on rail travel to get to the job.
  17. My parents are 78 and 76 and they are going back again this year as they like the country and the people so much , my Dad says he likes it as it really hasn’t changed that much in years he doesn’t tend to go to big cities either ,we all have our own preferences though. I find the people in Brittany very friendly as were the people in Saint Emilion and around there.
  18. We only go twice a year and luckily haven’t suffered any disruption or seen any unrest my parents have been affected it delayed their journey home by less than 24 hours, each to their own but it’s not affected my travel plans.
  19. You would still have to be very unlucky to get disrupted on your ferry journey or be affected by custom officer strikes, personally we hardly use the train on holiday with the exception of non important short journeys and don’t really go to big cities although when we went to Bordeaux last summer there wasn’t any sign of riots or protests.
  20. That would be filed under things that would never happen also I can’t see them ever using Rosyth which is the more realistic option.
  21. We are out of pocket already.
