Trying to calm down from sheer panic.
Got to ferry dock for ferry from here (G.C.) to Huelva.
Nada. I'm not booked on. Showed him all my booking details, told me to go to office.

They had a ticket waiting for me. The boat has been diverted and now going to Cadiz. I booked thru a third party site and they hadn't told me.

I've booked a hotel in Huelva tmrw night, but this will save me 2 hours ride.
I'm staying in Cadiz anyway over the weekend.

Pen's gonna give them a bollocking and try to get refund on hotel

My heart sank and was in real panic as I've paid a lot for this weekend riding at Jerez.

And true to Canarian time, not started boarding yet. Ramps still up.
Supposed to sail in 12 minutes

It gets worse/dafter.

This ferry to Spain stopped putting onto our island so had to get little ferry to G.C.

This morning's change of destination also added another stop en route.

The bugger has just pulled into Arrecife port. 5 miles from our house.

Don't know whether to laugh or cry :obscene-birdiedoublered:


Just checked the website and this is planned stop on next ferry.

They changed it awhile ago to skip here, but it's changed back since I booked.

Sitting in my friends kitchen drink some seriously horrid coffee!! How do they like this stuff?!! Next time I’m bringing my own beans :lol: :lol:

Coffee needed as still haven’t slept right in the spare bed and about to head to GVA to collect them 😁😁

At least I get to drive the big Levorg again for a big distance 💕

Just having a cheeky afternoon beer, right by the beach.
After the 3 days of insanity earlier this week, it's nice to have 3 days off before it all starts again Saturday :obscene-birdiedoublered:

On the ferry at Cadiz, heading home to Lanzarote.

Well, sort of. For some unknown reason, the ferry is missing our island (as planned) and calling in at Puerto de Rosario on Fuerteventura. Doesn't normally stop on Fuerteventura

Then we wait a bit for ferry to take us to Playa Blanca. Then 40 mins ride home.
There's bigger problems in the world. Just wondering WTF caused this one :D

On the ferry from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote. It's a bloody huge catamaran but rocking and rolling like a rolly thing.
Never seen anything like it. Thought Cats were stable.

A few folk emptying their stomachs ;)

I'm just hoping they tied the bikes down properly. I suppose they're used to it.
