We were tipped off 18 months ago by Clee that Ryanair was going to keep flights going over the winter and a new operator would start up the motorway of the sea Gijón-St Nazaire to enable easy drive to Roscoff.
Well it has finally happened Ryanair opened their winter booking sometime in the last couple of weeks and yesterday we found that they are flying Wednesday and Saturday at early o-clock Faro-Cork. Bummer was the flight we would ideally have taken just before Christmas was already fully booked so we have booked the Wednesday before at €59 one way.
Even better news for us Brittany Ferries have opened a new route Santander to Cork starting on the 27th April running all year. We are already booked for July. It is eye wateringly expensive but in terms of ease of driving and time saving it is justified for us.
For all you Irish down here these might be two useful options to add to your portfolio.

Hi

March 8 is Ladies day!!

I dont know if its a Portuguese thing - or just a special night organised by the Campesino in MF.

There is entertainment, an all-in menu, drinks included (beer, wine, softs).

AND its Ladies ONLY.

So dump hubby/boyfriend at home and have a laugh with 'the girls'

If interested check out the poster on the wall in front of the bar.

Reservations only by 7/3 subject to availability

Jon

Ooooops March 8 is International Women's Day hence this 'do' above is probably one of many, internationally.

Hi
All the hotels in Canela are still shut except one until the end of April
The one open is where the Spanish OAP's are @ the mo & they are mainly transferred by bus
Sorry that doesn't help

LOCAL TRANSPORT INFORMATION

Thought I would post this again as the previous version has sunk into the mists of time:

Transport Algarve/Spain

Although the site is titled Algarve bus it does have a lot of useful information about near Spain transport as well.
Don't forget to click to the home page as there is a lot more info there too.

Just got in and should alert everyone to major work on the bridge. Looks structural to me.

So as we know sometimes there are security checks etc and there are delays. Now that will be worse. Only one lane each way, with an awful yellow line that looks like it was painted after many sangrias!


Perhaps allow some extra time for important trips, airport, docs, nice lunch etc

It’s planned work. They are spending 9.5 million. It started 9 months ago but stopped because a contractor got in money trouble. Restarted about 6 weeks ago
