As I mentioned in my last post, we’re off on our first holiday abroad as a family this summer. We’re going to France and I’m really looking forward to it.
Well, I’m looking forward to the being there side of things anyway. The getting there bit is going to be stressful. If only I’d have seen this infographic from Brittany Ferries before booking our flights to Bordeaux!
I’m not just saying this because the purpose of this post is to show how many advantages there are to taking a ferry instead of a plane, but I’m genuinely dreading the prospect of Dylan and Xander at a great altitude.
I haven’t worked out which one I’m most concerned about yet as they will both present their own bespoke problems, but getting them on it is going to be a similar experience to that of The A-Team on those occasions in which they needed B. A. to board a flight. Now, where’s that glass of milk, eh?
So what are the benefits of taking a ferry to France as opposed to a plane? Well, to be honest, what aren’t? It takes less time for starters plus there’s the massive bonus of space.
We’re talking actual leg room and as much luggage as you can cram into your car, which can’t be bad. Though if I drove, I’d be travelling light so as to keep room for a few cases of red. Well, it would be rude not to.
We used to go to France every summer when I was a kid and it was always by ferry. I really looked forward to the adventure that was being able to walk around the boat doing different things and seeing who could spot land first. It would be nice for my two to experience it too so I think we’ll definitely go by ferry next time. If they’re not too much of a nightmare this summer that is!
