Pre Spain day 1 & 2 in France (Our bonus country!) – St Malo to Libourne Coast Highway
A few days before the tour was to begin, we received a phone call at Magellan HQ to say that the scheduled ferry from Plymouth had been cancelled due to a fire and we had been moved to a crossing from Portsmouth to St Malo instead, with a catch! That it sailed a day earlier! Wowzers….
So it was all hands on deck at HQ and very quickly we arranged a new hotel in France, and made sure all our magellanites were prepared.
Who would have thought a tour of Spain and Portugal would start in France! But this didn’t deter any of us, in fact it meant we were going to get 3 countries for the price of 2! Albeit with another 1000 miles added to the tour, but in true biker style we all took it in our stride.
So it was onto the ferry at Portsmouth after a welcome from our guide.
