I saw that and thought Boris Johnson's got a new woman.
Alternatively hunker down at the bottom of the boatnand take travel sickness tablets, you aren't going to be able to pick the sea state when you're booking anything more than a day in advance.
If you're going on a day trip forgo the pubs and have a walk further up the island.
I didn't need to book my ticket for the boat in advance.
"Forgo the pubs" is an interesting idea but my walk included three beaches and I wasn't aware that there was much of interest "further up the island"
A day trip maybe, but not a few days break.
There's probably 5 or 6 beaches far superior up island.
Yes, another time maybe.
Did think about the choppy seas ..... brings back memories of vowing never to sail again on a trip over to do the Dublin Marathon. Caught the midnight Sealink ferry , sea so rough they batoned down the hatches and no-one was allowed on deck for the whole journey. Stepping over many spewing up bodies to reach the loos to spew up for most of the journey myself. (Hubby and the rest of Stafford Harriers were drinking guiness and playing cards ) Coming back on P&O in the daytime was different again though , when I was ok spending the whole journey outside on deck.
(Met the New Zealand All Blacks in the hotel lift. Didn't know who all these 'giants' were until afterwards. )
How long is the trip over to the islands?
Not had chance to check anything out today yet. Made the most of the dry weather to do some gardening.
2 hours 45. I've booked my ferry today, £130 each each way. A day trip is only about £35 but you'll only get 4 hours there. You can fly too, that's about £250 I think.
I think I've been on the ferry about 25 times, and have only been sick twice, and I get ill on most rides at Alton Towers! We always travel down overnight, so I have my travel sickness tablet and go to sleep. The first 45 minutes are getting to Lands End, so generally you're protected by the mainland, and you're only out in the sea for about an hour before you start to get into the lee of the islands.
Must have been a bloody big lift...
Oooh dear, a lot longer than I was expecting . Only looked a short hop over on the telly programs. Got all the travel options up now and rather like the look of the Skybus , although never been on such a small plane , apart from a small cargo plane going to Majorca once. Would certainly be a new experience! Got some holiday discussing to do with hubby ! (He's scared enough getting on 757's )
Must have been about 6 of them squashed in the lift with me & hubby going down to breakfast. They were MASSIVE , especially to my 5'2" . I only came up to their waists, was like being in the land of the giants .The whole team was in the bar area later , having some sort of pre-match discussions.
Don't overthink it, just go for it. I don't know anyone who had only been once, it's the sort of place that draws you back.
Pretty sure we will be visiting if we can find suitable accommodation available on the islands and in Devon & Cornwall for stays en-route. Hubbys got loads of holidays to use with carrying loads over , so can have a longer break in the summer this year .
"Oooh dear, a lot longer than I was expecting" but with all the coastline, the sharks, seals and dozens of seabirds there's never a dull moment - nearly as good as the journeys between Paddington and Penzance.
In retrospect riding to work on the bike this morning doesn't seem like such a great idea. Hoping the strong gusts of wind and rain die down a bit before I head off home.
Well it didn't rain. It was still miserable though. Looks like I might be becoming a fair-weather bike in my old age...
I made sure my run was west to east (and back again) to ensure I didn't get the worst of it.
Started my work day 15-20 foot in the air, on a ladder.... Not what I was expecting.
Was it to put up a racists not wanted sign?
I really really wish it was. It would of been worth my terror.
Just what is wrong with people? Aldi carrots don't get these problems.
You should have said, I needed a giggle today....
