Getting to Spain: Sunday 19th July
Today we drive from Southampton to Plymouth to catch the 1545 ferry to Santander. It's a shame we had to do this but it was impossible to get a pedestrian/cycle ticket in any of the ferries out of Portsmouth. It turned out to be more reliable to take a one-way rental than to get tickets on the train with no guarantee we would be allowed to take our bikes on, on a busy summer weekend.
Here's our bikes in the van
And here we are getting on the ferry.
There was a nice community of cyclists heading to Spain.
And bye to UK!
We had an excellent meal in the restaurant this evening.
