Unlike the UK there is free designated parking in or super close to the CBD of most city’s/ places of interest. We parked up and set … Continue reading Donostia-San Sebastián
A 3.30am start from Kent for an 8am departure from Portsmouth gave us time a plenty to show Theo the ‘big boats’ before boarding our own and start pancake day in the right way- with Blueberry pancakes in the van! I’ve done this crossing several times but I seemed to have blocked the memory the sheer terror the Bay of Biscay had caused- but once … Continue reading Portsmouth to Santander 28 Hour Ferry with 2 kids!
