In 2018 it would seem crazy not to fly.
Yet I recommend the overnight ferry for foot passengers. It’s a huge ship. Reasonable cost. Good food. Two films offered each night. Wifi works.
Departing at dusk I got to see the Emirates Spinnaker Tower departing Portsmouth.
Booking just a seat, I slept about 3 hours on my camping mattress. Accommodation with beds looked good too.
I never would have learned about the amazing destination if I hadn’t taken this trip … St. Malo, France. That’s it in the background.
But the main reason I traveled this route was to visit famed Mont St. Michel which is an easy visit from here.
I would like to return to see more of Brittany and Normandy. It was my first visit to northern France.
