A bridge too far first time abroad?

Evening lads and lasses.
I think I know the answer,but work run to malaga and alicante got 2 shops there,run to the docks boat to northern Spain then trek down to malaga and alicante.
Never been abroad or on a ferry before :blush: but love too but it’s the fear of the unknown really.

Am I running before I can jump?.

Hope you don’t get sea sick…That bay of Biscay can get a bit rough…

The Bilbao and Santander ferries have a swimming pool on the top deck,casinos,nightclubs and a lecture about whale watching in the bay of Biscay, with a chance to spot whales.
Pack the sunscreen and trunks, the sea is warm now for a dip on your 45 minute tacho break by the beach.

:open_mouth: :open_mouth: :laughing: Err, not yet Tobes, The Bay of Biscay is permanently bloody freezing and the Med is still cold, well it is to a southern softie like me! :smiley:

Thank you for the advice chaps got to wait on work to see,bit scary but so was first time out in a bendy solo fingers crossed :slight_smile:

Tony Bradfield still doing Morocco in his eighties, he may be on the ferry pulling a DT trailer.
There are cinemas on board with the latest releases.
If you get coaches on with school kids, God help you, they go mental, running around the decks all night, screaming and shouting.
The pursers put out tannoy calls, to control them.
But the teachers are in the bar letting their hair down , so don’t care.
The ships staff call the kids petite elephants.
You may have to share a cabin with four bunk beds, with drivers of the same nationality, expect snoring, ■■■■■■■, and somebody coming in at 3 am drunk as a skunk, body odours and smelly feet.

Just do it, in at the deep end,and as nick says-

ust go steady keep yourself 100% legal park where others park and be extra safety conscious on everything your doing . Lock the doors at all times

Plus correct and in date permit ,vehicle docs, your docs,28 days records or letter if you have none or just started working for company.
When stopped have every thing by the book because the fines can be telephone numbers for the smallest thing wrong,
Also watch your speed and take plenty of breaks,leave card in all the time and keep evidence of your ferry crossing,
Also in Spain start and end shift with region you are in,takes a bit of working out where you are sometimes.
BEWARE WHERE YOU PARK a lot of crime on the med coast good external doors locks handy.
Good luck and enjoy a nice route to drive.
Klunk

Free truck parking in road side hotels,they have menu del dia,daily menu,the meals are cheap and good quality.
Soup or salad starters, mains then pudding.
Cheese and beer or wine included, with a coffee, or add Cognac to the coffee .
No photocopied truck documents are accepted, originals only.
The Basque area has a reputation for huge fines,you may pass through the Navara area.
The Catalan Mosses police have their moments too.
Cab crime is common in Spain from EE criminals.
If you see buildings with Club written on a sign, that is a brothel.
If you get down that way, Puerto de Banus is
full of mega yachts and Ferraris.
