Re: Driving Directions from Santander Port

Many many thanks to you all for your help. Sorry to be a pain but can anyone now suggest hotels about half way down? Really want somewhere with either secure parking or off the main drag. Have trawled through so many sites but not come up with anywhere yet!

Re: Driving Directions from Santander Port

Has anyone done this journey recently? If so, which route do you recommend. Would prefer motorway and toll roads as opposed to scenic route. Many thanks.

Re: Are You travelling Less ?

yes travelling less. But.. Ryanair are looking seriously at putting STOOLS (chairs not the smelly things) into their planes. To get people used to using them there will be lots of free or reduced price seats(?) so we could all travel more frequently. You can get more passengers in using stools inst...
